Crowd Control Munitions Shot into East Jerusalem Children’s Bedroom
In East Jerusalem, Palestinians regularly protest their home demolitions and forced evictions.
Israeli forces typically use crowd-control munitions such as tear gas or rubber bullets on demonstrators, even in densely populated neighborhoods, causing suffocation, injury, or trauma.
These weapons can also be fired into residential homes, like when a sponge-tipped bullet shattered a window and landed in the home of Rajaf Rajoubi, 11, and her brother, Ahmad, 16.
Everyone should feel safe at home.
