The parents of an American man severely wounded by IDF troops in a recent West Bank protest want the Israeli government to take responsibility for the incident. Tristan Anderson was struck in the head March 13th by a tear gas canister fired by the soldiers in the village of Ni'lin. Anderson is from Oakland, California. Anderson's parents have came to Israel to see their son. In a news conference Monday in Jerusalem, Anderson's father, Mike, said he wanted Israel to "publicly take full responsibility" for the incident. Israeli officials had no immediate comment, saying the incident is under investigation.
