“It was like getting hit by a rock,” Wedeman told the news network during an interview, holding up the rubber bullet fired by Israeli riot police during the events in east Jerusalem on Friday.



Wedeman said that he was bleeding profusely after being hit by the bullet, which is another form of crowd control that police employ in hopes of quelling massive unrest.
