Israeli Forces Shoot Ni'lin Resident in the Neck with Live Ammunition

A 20 year old resident of the village of Ni'lin was shot in the neck
by Israeli forces at around 5:30am.

Mohammed Srour was shot in the neck with live ammunition as Israeli
forces invaded the village, coming from the construction site. He is
currently in Sheikh Zaide hospital where his condition is not severe.
Another resident, Nabil Nafar, was beaten by Israeli forces who broke
his upper arm. Two more residents were hit by rubber-coated steel
bullets and were treated in the village.

7 Israeli jeeps and around 70 soldiers invaded the village at around
3am, firing live ammunition, tear-gas, rubber-coated steel bullets.
Confrontations between residents and the invading army around the
village mosques occurred as residents awoke to pray.

The army invaded the house of Akil Nafar, causing much damage to his
house. However, no arrests were made.
