Palestinian farmer boy injured by shrapnel

Interview with a 16 year old Palestinian farmer who got injured by shrapnel, above his eye, on the 15th of July while working about 500 meters from the Green Line between the areas of Abassan Jedida and Al Faraheen, in Gaza Strip.

The interview was taken the next night, after the boy got out of the European Hospital in Khan Younis and returned to his house. Although that day there was exchange of fire between the Israeli Occupation Forces and the Palestinian armed resistance, the boy, his family and other Palestinians in the area insist that the injury was caused by Israeli gunfire. They showed also some kind of bullet collected that day.
