The choice by Israel to respond to nonviolent protests with violence continues.

Sherri,


Could you please define what the report means when using the word "shot"?

revealing that Israeli soldiers shot at least 370 Palestinians during the Nakba commemoration,



Sherri,


The above, taken from the news article you posted, is incorrect (a lie).  About 370 Palestinians sustained minor injuries, the majority by inhalation of tear gas.  Some were shot, but, yes, please answer Habesor's question concerning the term "shot".


The incidents happened in only a few places and were the results of riots and attacks by the Palestinians on the IDF, border guards and Israeli civilians which included throwing rocks and molotov cocktails and at least one explosive device.  One Israeli soldier and three border police officers were also injuried.
