Christian Peacemaker Team: Nakba

Posted on May 22, 2018


On this anniversary of the continuing Nakba, CPT monitors heard or otherwise witnessed 25 tear gas canisters and 24 stun grenades. There were an additional 21 popping sounds that we could not determine whether the source was live ammunition or rubber-coated bullets. We were told by community members the news that two people were shot at this demonstration.

CPT was unable to be present for the entire demonstration, therefore the numbers are only representative of a portion of the excessive use of force used by Israeli forces.
