IPNOT PICTURE OF THE DAY from March 24th 2017: SHOT FOR PROTECTING HIS LAND

Our picture of the day for Friday March 24th shows the moment immediately after a protester was shot and wounded by Israel’s occupation during a protest march in Ramallah district on the West Bank.
 
A total of 12 protesters were wounded during the protest march against building of a new illegal Israeli colony on the lands of the villages of Kafr Malek and al-Mogheer. Five were shot with live bullets and seven with rubber-coated steel bullets.
 
A further 14 people suffered from effects of tear gas inhalation, which can be fatal, especially to people with pre-existing conditions, even in outdoors. Associated Press’ photographer Nasser al-Shuyoukhi lost his consciousness after inhaling tear gas.
 
Some of the wounded and injured had to be transported away in normal vehicles as there was a lack of ambulances.
