Villagers of Budrus gathered after the Friday prayers for a demonstration called for by Fatah against derogatory images of Mohammed the Prophet, February 10. When the march reached the annexation barrier, villagers began tearing down the fence.
Later the military invaded Budrus village and were confronted by youth throwing stones. Israeli soldiers shot 24-year-old Mohammed Taha Morar with live ammunition below the left knee. Morar underwent three-hour surgery at Sheik Ziad hospital in Ramallah where he is awaiting another operation.
