Nabi Saleh shooting incident

The video, taken by Bilal Tamimi and obtained by Ynet, shows two Palestinian women approaching Border Guard officers standing near their vehicle. The officers cried out at the women, urging them to stay back, but the women continued to walk toward them.

 

One of the women is then seen moving her hands up in the air, at which point the officers raise their weapons in attempt to deter the women, but when the women continue to move closer, one of the officers fires his gun and hits the knee of one of the women – Manal Tamimi – with a rubber bullet.

 

Many then gathered near Tamimi and evacuated her to a nearby house in the village for medical care.

 

According to Nabi Saleh residents, Tamimi was later evacuated to a Ramallah hospital.

 

Diana al-Zir, an activist who attended Friday's protest, told Ynet that the women walked toward the officers to tell them to stay away from the village. According to al-Zir, Tamimi sustained bullet wounds to four different spots in her body. She added that the victim was discharged from the hospital on Friday night and returned home.

 

Border Guard Spokesperson noted that "the circumstances of the incident will be investigated. The video shows partial incidents of an event in which dozens of Palestinians, some masked, were hurling stones and firebombs at (Border Guard) forces. During the incident, the suspect approached the force holding a stone in her hand."
