A Palestinian man died on Friday after he was hit in the chest by a teargas canister launched by an Israeli soldier. The scene was filmed by a protester.
The demonstration took place in Bilin, a Palestinian village that lies next to the security wall put in place by Israel. Israeli forces say they fired tear gas after protesters started throwing stones. The man, who was knocked down and died soon after, was 30-year-old Basem Ibrahim Abu Rahma. His brother, Ashraf Abu Rahma, was also the victim of an Israeli bavure in July 2008.
The footage was filmed by a foreign activist, David, from "Anarchists against the Wall".
Abdullah Abu Rahme is Basem's brother. He's a member of the group "Bilin Village".
The protest started as normal, but then the Israelis reacted harshly. They use different weapons every time: sometimes rubber bullets, sometimes real bullets, this time teargas canisters. These are normally used to disperse protesters, but this time they deliberately fired at us. Doing that can kill; it's more dangerous than real bullets.
We will not stand down. We'll continue to protest until they give us our land back."
Salam Jamal Kanaan, 17, lives in the neighbouring village of Naalin. She was filming when an Israeli soldier shot Basem's brother last July.
