In the village of an-Nabi Salah, in the district of Ramallah, an organizer of the weekly non-violent protest, Abu Hussam Tamimi, was shot in the face by the Israeli military, at a distance of approximately 20 meters, according the the Popular Struggle Coordination Committee, on Friday.

Tamimi was shot in the face with a rubber coated steel bullet, contravening international law regarding the use of so-called crowd dispersal tactics, that state that projectiles should be fired towards the legs.

Local activists stated via Twitter that Tamimi lost a great deal of blood while waiting to be evacuated to hospital by the Red Crescent ambulance services.

The Popular Committee further stated that Tamimi has suffered a fracture.

Also, in an-Nabi Saleh an 11 year old boy, name not known, was shot in the torso with a rubber coated steel bullet, possibly fracturing the boy’s ribs.

In total more than ten injuries wee reported in Nabi Saleh, as was the use of live ammunition. None of those injuries reported were due to the use of live munitions.

Furthermore, local journalist and volunteer for the Israeli human rights organization, B’Tselem, Bilal Tamimi, was arrested whilst filming this week’s protest.
