Affidavit by: Muhanad Mahmoud Ali al-Qawasmi

Incident date: June 27, 2010

Venue of the incident: Jerusalem neighborhood of Silwan

"At around 9:30 p.m on Sunday June 27, 2010 while I was sitting inside the store of my brother in al-Bustan area of Silwan, there were some clashes in Batn al-Hawa area where the house of settlers locates and known by Beit Yonathan. A team of medics form the Palestinian Red Crescent where present in the area during the clashes. One of the medics requested my help in carrying one injured woman who suffered of gas inhalation. However, while I was carrying the woman near the stairs that leads to al-Bustan area, I saw a group of soldiers running down the stairs while firing rubber coated metal bullets. When I looked towards them while they were at a distance of 30 meters, I felt something hit my right eye. Later, I found my self inside St. John Eye Hospital where the doctors reported to me that I sustained a very serious injury in the eye."
