The IDF confirmed that sharp shooters fired 0.22 caliber ammunition at the lower body of a protester in the West Bank town of Nabi Saleh Friday afternoon. An IDF spokesman noted that the protester was previously known to security forces and was specifically targeted after he was identified throwing stones at security forces.

Activists posted a picture online of a man who appeared to have been shot in his thigh.

Additionally, a Border Police officer was very lightly injured when a stone struck him at the demonstration, the spokesman said.
