Shooting marks the first time an Israeli Jew has been targeted by the Israeli military since the intifada began. We talk to an Israeli refusnik and an American woman who was also shot by Israeli troops on Friday.

In the West Bank, the Israeli military is coming under domestic criticism after an unarmed Israeli Jewish protester was shot with live ammunition on Friday. The shooting came during a peaceful demonstration against the massive new wall that Israel is building through much of the West Bank. The young man was shot in both legs and remains hospitalized. The Israeli newspaper Haaretz is reporting the shooting marks the first time the Israel army has targeted Israeli Jews with live ammunition during the three-year-old intifada. An American protester, Anne Farina, was also shot.

  • Stav Adivi, a major in the Israeli Defense Forces who is one of 1200 Israeli soldiers who is refusing to serve in the West Bank and Gaza
  • Anne Farina, American demonstrator who was shot by the Israeli military at a protest near the new wall Israel is building through the West Bank.
