Palestinian bystander, 14, loses eye from rubber bullet allegedly fired by IDF

A 14-year-old Palestinian bystander lost his eye on Friday afternoon in the West Bank city of Hebron after apparently being hit by a rubber-tipped steel bullet fired by an Israeli soldier, although the Israeli army said it could neither confirm nor deny the matter.

A spokesperson for the IDF did not deny the possibility and acknowledged that Israeli soldiers had fired rubber bullets at a crowd of Palestinians nearby.

“There was a violent protest, including stone-throwing and stone-slinging, and the military responded with riot dispersal mechanisms, including rubber bullets,” the Israeli military’s spokesperson said.
