This is viewer supported news

A 21-year-old British peace activist is in coma after being shot by Israeli forces in Gaza on Friday.

The man, Tom Hurndall, became the third British or American activist who was killed or seriously injured by the Israeli army in the last month.

A week earlier 24-year-old Brian Avery of New Mexico, was shot in the face in Jenin. He remains in critical condition and may never speak again.

And just under a month ago, 23-year-old Rachel Corrie, of Seattle, was crushed to death in Gaza as she attempted to block a bulldozer from demolishing the home of a Palestinian doctor.

  • Alice, international peace activist in Rafah who witnessed both Rachel’s death and Tom’s shooting.
  • Mark Regev, spokesman at the Embassy of Israel in Washington, DC.
  • Craig and Cindy Corrie, parents of Rachel Corrie, who was killed last month in the Gaza Strip by an Israeli bulldozer while trying to protect a Palestinian home from demolition.
  • Diana Duttu, a negotiating advisor to the PLO on the peace process.
