In November, a video surfaced online showing an Israeli soldier firing a round at a Palestinian protester, who was later killed.

The incident occurred during a demonstration against plans to demolish Palestinian homes and businesses on occupied East Jerusalem, which Israel annexed in the 1967 Middle East war.

The demonstration took place on November 18.
