Yahya Yorsi Taha

November 26, 2015: Yahya Yosri Taha, 21, was shot in the head by an Israeli soldier during protests that took place between the soldiers and local youths after the army invaded their town, Qotna, northwest of occupied Jerusalem.

Media sources said dozens of Israeli soldiers invaded the town and shot Yahya with one live round in the head, during the protests.

Medics who rushed to the scene said the soldiers kept Taha bleeding on the ground for more than 90 minutes and prevented Palestinian medics from even approaching him.

Protests took place in various parts of Qotna, after dozens of soldiers surrounded the village, and invaded it. The troops stormed and ransacked dozens of homes, and kidnapped scores of residents.

The town’s youngsters hurled stones and empty bottles at the soldiers, who fired dozens of live rounds, rubber-coated steel bullets and gas bombs.

The soldiers also assaulted and clubbed many residents after forcing them out of their homes. In each of the homes they invaded, the soldiers forced the families into one room and forced them to remain there while the troops ransacked and searched their property.
