As a result, Hamada Samir Jendiya, 21, was injured. In his affidavit to Al Mezan, Hamada stated: “I went to work at my uncle’s land along with three other farmers. Ten minutes later, I heard firing and felt pain in my left leg and fall on the ground. I was fainted and when I woke up I found myself in Shifa hospital. I received medical treatment and left the hospital at 6:00 pm on the same day.”
