Updates on Nablus – From May 2, 2004 to June 11, 2004, by ISM Nablus

[Nablus]Last night, June 10, 13 year old Hani Mahmoud Qandil was shot in the head by Israeli military. This is the way local ISM volunteer Sameh described the scene in the Old City of Nablus last night:

"At 9 pm we heard the soldiers coming in the Old City. A group of us went to check if they are coming or not really and to see if they will occupy any houses. I'm going in the Old City and found twenty jeeps around the Old City. The first coming four jeeps inside the Al-Qaryon district and after that more soldiers.

There are twenty of us guys trying to check where the soldiers are. We heard live bullets. We founded a boy shouting. We founded the live bullet in his face and a gaping wound from the back of his head.

We take him up near the Zafer al-Masri school to check his condition. The heart for him was not working. We take him in a civilian car to the Tahasuseh Hospital near An-Najah University and the doctor told us he's died."
