QUSRA | NABLUS
On 10 January 2013, armed settlers raided fields next to the village of Qusra, and clashed with local residents. Some settlers opened fire and Palestinians threw stones.
Israeli forces at the scene fired tear gas, rubber coated bullets and live ammunition towards Palestinians.
Some Palestinians were injured, and many trees were vandalized and damaged.
Ammar was 19 years old back then.
He was shot with live ammunition in his leg, and sustained three fractured bones.
❝I run a barber shop in Qusra and my father used to work in a settlement,❞ he told us shortly after the incident.
❝These were the only sources of income for my family, which includes eight people.
❝After the attack, my leg was operated on, and since then I can’t move. The doctors said that I need at least three months before I can start physiotherapy.
❝My father had to quit his job to keep the shop running. The incident directly worsened our economic situation.❞
