He was incredibly lucky | WHAT REALLY HAPPENED


He was incredibly lucky

“I was given a new life on December 21, 2018.”

That’s what Mohammed Asad wrote to me after shrapnel from an Israeli sniper’s bullet narrowly missed him as he was covering the Great March of Return protests in Gaza on Friday.

Mohammed’s camera took the bullet instead.

But just meters away from Mohammed, a Palestinian child was not so fortunate.

The same bullet whose fragments destroyed the camera, hit 16-year-old Muhammad al-Jahjouh in the neck, killing him. Shrapnel from the exploding round wounded one other person.
