The sources said that Karim Sobhi Abu Sbeih, 17, was seriously injured in his abdomen after an Israeli soldier fired a Dumdum bullet at him during an invasion into the Jenin refugee camp.

During the invasion, the army shot and killed one resident identified as Mohammad Lahlouh, and seriously shot and injured another resident identified as Ala’ Jamal Abu Khalifa, 19.

On Monday [August 26 2013] soldiers shot and killed three Palestinians in the Qalandia refugee camp, north of occupied East Jerusalem, and wounded dozens of residents mostly by live rounds.

The three slain residents have been identified as Jamal Jahjouh, 22, Rubin Ziad, 32, and Jihad Aslan, 19.

A Dumdum bullet, also called an expanding bullet, is designed to expand on impact, thus increasing the damage to the body.

The Hague Convention of 1899 has outlawed the usage of those rounds. The use of those rounds against unarmed civilians is a crime.
