RAMALLAH (Ma'an) -- A young Palestinian man was seriously injured after Israeli forces shot him on Saturday evening in the East Jerusalem neighborhood of Anata.

Private sources confirmed that the young man was suffering from a critical injury and extensive bleeding after being shot in the thigh with expanding dum-dum bullets by Israeli forces during clashes in the neighborhood.

He was reportedly transferred to Hadassah Ein Karem Hospital in Jerusalem due to his condition.

Are these 'expanding dum dum bullets' actually 'expanding dum dum bullets'? Those happen to be illegal under the Geneva convention. I know Israel doesn't fret unduly about the Geneva convention, but it nevertheless strikes me as a tad unlikely Israel would engage in such a gratuitous and easily detected violation. But then, perhaps even I still have a few illusions left to shed when it comes to the ol' light unto.

Horrific and internationally banned weapons... Used in "crowd control".. His whole upper leg shredded, and torn to bits.. Perhaps there is a more humane way to opress the population? This will not foster peace.. Only more violence...

Israel has NEVER used "Dum Dums." The only "Dum Dums" are the pseudo-journalists confuseing "Baton Round" with "Dum Dum Round."
