On 16 August 2016, a sniper seriously wounded Muhammad al-‘Amsi, while he was standing on the roof of his home during the military raid on al-Fawwar RC in mid-August. The sniper fired four 0.22 inch caliber bullets at al-‘Amsi, immediately after shouting to him, “Where do you want it”?. Al-‘Amsi was posing no threat to anyone at the time. A photographer with Palestinian news agency Ma’an, who was standing on a nearby roof, caught part of the incident on video. Al-‘Amsi was taken to al-Ahali hospital in Hebron for initial treatment, and transferred to Ramallah Medical Center due to the severity of his injuries. He underwent surgery on both legs and remained in hospital for ten days. The video was edited and released by Ma’an, and B’Tselem has no access to the raw footage.
