An 11 year old boy called Ahmed Ussam Yusef Mousa was shot dead at
approximately 6pm near the Palestinian village of Nil؟in. He was shot
once in the head at close range with live ammunition.
According to ISM volunteers inside Nil؟in, confrontations are taking
place between villagers and the Israeli forces; shots have been heard
and five people are said to have been wounded.
Demonstrations have been held almost every day for the past few weeks
as near Nil؟in against Israel؟s Apartheid Wall, declared illegal by
the International Court in the Hague in 2004. The wall will deprive
the village of almost 2,500 Dunums of agricultural land, and put the
existence of the entirely community in doubt.
The news came on the same day that Victor MacDiarmid, a Canadian human
rights worker was due for deportation at midnight from Ben Gurion
airport near Tel Aviv. The 23 year old had been shot twice, once in
the shoulder and once in the knee by rubber coated steel bullets
whilst attending the Nil؟in protests. He was arrested whilst taking
pictures of a woman؟s demonstration on 23rd of July.
The Israeli Army and Border Police have been increasingly ill-
disciplined and violent in response to the demonstrations. News came
this morning that Israeli Battalion Commander Lt. Col Omri, had been
sent on 10 days compulsory leave as a punishment for his conduct at
Nil؟in. Omri held a 27 year old Palestinian detainee Ashraf Abu Rahma
by the shoulder while one of his men shot Abu Rahma with a rubber
coated steel bullet at very close range. Abu Rahma was blindfolded and
his hands were bound when he was shot in the foot.
At least 11 other Palestinians have died protesting against Israeli؟s
apartheid wall. Their names are:
Mohammad Fadel Hashem Rayan, age 25.
Zakaria MaHmud Salem, age 28.
Abdal Rahman Abu Eid, age 62.
