Israeli Forces Target West Bank Protesters During Israeli Apartheid Week (VIDEO)

Palestinian and international activists demonstrated in marches in the occupied West Bank during Israeli Apartheid Week on Friday, with Israeli forces targeting several protests with tear gas and live fire, injuring a 12-year-old boy.

Two Palestinians, including a child, were injured by live fire as Israeli forces dispersed the weekly protest in the northern occupied West Bank village of Kafr Qaddum.

Khalid Murad Shtewei, 12, was shot in his right leg, while Mashhour Jumaa, 45, was shot in the thigh while trying to rescue Shtewei.

They were both taken to a hospital in Nablus for treatment.

Doctors operated on Khalid, who suffered from severe damage to the bones in his legs.

Video footage taken in Kafr Qaddum showed the young boy struggling to get up after being shot in the leg, and Jumaa being shot as he tried to carry Khalid away from the soldiers. The video later shows both Palestinian receiving first aid treatment in an ambulance.
