On 19 May 2017, Israeli security forces fired tear gas canisters at
protesters in ‘Abud. Some fell in nearby homes. ‘Abd a-Rahman al-Majid, a
toddler with ALS was at his home and had trouble breathing due to gas
inhalation. This footage, filmed by Falastin TV, shows his parents, and
medics trying to get him to an ambulance waiting at the entrance to the
village. The toddler was taken to hospital and remained there for three
weeks. Four weeks after returning home, he died. This case illustrates
Israel’s lenient, permissive use of “crowd control” measures, relying on
the fact they are considered “non-lethal” and ignoring the danger
