The IDF has increased the use of live ammunition against Palestinians demonstrating or throwing stones.
On Thursday, 20th November, 2014, an IDF jeep drove into Deir El-Hattab (east of Nablus). The soldiers claim that stones were thrown at them. They shot live bullets towards children in the vicinity. A youth standing nearby was hurt in his leg by a live bullet. He was taken to hospital.
On Friday, 28th November, 2014, the weekly demonstration against closure of the access road to Kufr Qaddum (west of Nablus), took place. Soldiers nearby shot tear gas towards the demonstrators. Afterwards, they shot rubber coated bullets and live, 0.22” caliber ammunition. Two demonstrators were injured in their chests, and one of them in the hand, too. They were taken to hospital. Ten more demonstrators were injured by rubber coated bullets. Four required hospitalization.
