Israeli forces shot and critically injured a Palestinian minor with live ammunition as he was with his friends at a park in the village of Saffa to the West of Ramallah, according to the Palestinian news agency WAFA.
Head of Saffa village council, Ahmad Samara, told WAFA that Israeli forces shot and injured 16-year-old Ahmad Falna in the leg, with live ammunition.
A new investigation by London-based human rights group Forensic Architecture (FA) has found that Erakat, 26, was shoot six times, three while on the floor, then denied medical attention while still moving despite posing no threat to the heavily armed Israeli soldiers.
