Israeli soldiers attacked demonstrators in the West Bank Friday, shooting live ammunition and tear gas at people congregated to commemorate the death of a young Palestinian.

According to Palestinian activist Manal Tamimi, who was present during the protest, 40 or 50 demonstrators were marching in solidarity with Samir Awad, a 17-year-old who was killed Tuesday in Budrus, a village near Israel’s apartheid wall.

The demonstration took place in Nabi Saleh, a small village near Ramallah known for its weekly protests against Israel’s illegal occupation, and for the frequent disproportionate use of violence by the Israeli army.

Israeli soldiers shot both live ammunition and rubber-coated bullets on Friday and sprayed tear gas and skunk water at the demonstrators.

Skunk is a potent-smelling spray used by Israeli forces, which can cling to clothing for several months. Activists and residents of Nabi Saleh also accuse Israel of regularly using the product to contaminate village water supplies.

More than ten people were injured during the attack, Tamimi said.

“The unnecessary use of live ammunition for a nonviolent protest, you just can’t imagine,” she added.

Tamimi estimated that around 100 soldiers were spreading across Nabi Saleh on Friday afternoon, and that violence was expected to continue until the evening.
