Rasmi al-Khatib, 2006

November 2006

Rasmi al-Khatib was 13 years old in October 2001, when he was playing soccer with friends. A soldier fired at the children and a bullet struck him. Since then, Rasmi's left arm has been paralyzed.

The Israeli government has proposed an amendment to its Tort Law intended to exempt Israel from paying compensation to Palestinians injured by the security forces.
