40 Year Old Man Shot by Israeli Soldiers

40 Year Old Man Shot by Israeli Soldiers

At approximately 3am this morning, the Israeli army shot a 40 year old
resident of Ni'lin four times from close range while invading his
house. He is now in a serious condition in Ramallah hospital.

Awad Srur, 40, was shot four times with rubber-coated steel bullets
from extremely close range as Israeli soldiers entered his house
looking to arrest his brother Akil Srur. One bullet was shot through
his eye, another at his head causing large internal hemorrhaging. 2
other bullets were fired into his chest.

At 3am the Israeli army invaded the village of Ni'lin and entered the
house of Awad Srur in order to reach the second floor of the building
where his brother lives. Awad, who suffers from a speech disability,
shouted at the soldiers repeatedly before being shot four times from
point blank range. The soldiers then proceeded to arrest Akil Srur who
is now being held in Israeli detention.

Awad was immediately taken to Ramallah hospital where his condition
remains critical.

To date, fifteen Palestinians, ten of them minors, were killed while
protesting the wall.

>From the original 58,000 dunums of Ni’lin land (580 hectares) more
than 69% was taken by Israel in 1948, while in 1967 44% of the remaining land was used for construction of the nearby settlements. The annexation wall, illegal under international law, will take a further 25% of the farming land that the village relies on for its income, and will make the once commercial capital of the area isolated from the surrounding villages. This will leave Nil’in, when the wall is finished, with only 10% of its original land (less than 15,000 dunums).
