This video captures the moment an Israeli sniper shot a bullet into the heart of Nader Mohammad Edrees, 40, during a protest in the Bab az-Zaweya area of Hebron on Friday. Doctors performed heart surgery but were unable to resuscitate him. He was pronounced dead hours later.

The video appears to show that Edrees posed no risk at all to occupying Israeli forces. Also note the brave older man near the end of the video waving a green cardboard rocket on his arm, in apparent support for Hamas’s actions in Gaza, right in front of soldiers’ guns.

Edrees was buried today in Hebron.

Edrees was one of three Palestinian men killed in separate protests in the last few days being held in locations across the occupied West Bank where Israeli military forces open fired with live ammunition.

Ma’an News reports at least 50 Palestinians were injured by shots of live ammunition rounds. The International Middle East Media Center (IMEMC)reports that along with being shot by the live rounds, gas bombs and concussion grenades were also used to disperse the demonstrators.

Tens of thousands of Palestinians have been demonstrating in the last month, in solidarity with their people in Gaza, many of whom have been slaughtered in massacres by the Israeli military.
