Israeli Soldiers Shot Hundreds of Palestinian Children with Live Ammunition: The Devastating Impact of Life After an Injury
“Before I was shot I did not bother anyone or get angry with anybody,” says Basel Kamal Safi from Deir Ammar refugee camp, near Ramallah in the occupied West Bank.
He was just 17 when an Israeli soldier shot him with live ammunition.
“Now I get angry because of the pain, especially when someone accidentally touches my injury,” he says in the short video below.
It is one of two videos published recently by Defense for Children International–Palestine (DCI-Palestine), highlighting the experiences of children shot by Israeli occupation forces with live ammunition.
The second video, below, features Fadel Abu Odwan, a 14-year-old in Gaza whose injury will leave him unable to have children.
In 2014, live ammunition fired by Israeli soldiers killed 11 Palestinian children in the occupied West Bank.
