Walid Omar, the young Beduin critically injured when he was shot in the shooting incident at Bank Hapoalim in Beersheba, woke up on Wednesday to tell police that he was shot by security forces, Channel 10 reported.

Speaking at Soroka University Medical Center, Omar said his gunshot wounds were not inflicted by Itamar Alon, the gunman, but rather by the security forces who arrived on the scene to rescue people in the bank.

Omar said that the police shot and handcuffed him, thinking he was guilty.
