Description : December 2006, eleven year old Ashraf was playing with his little brother at home in Em Beit Elma Refugee camp in the town of Nablus, West Bank, when he heard the sound of a car accident in the street outside. He went to the door to see what was happening and heard the sound of shooting. He managed to push his brother back into the house for safety. His brother escaped unhurt, but it was too late for Ashraf. He was hit in the neck by a bullet. In the streets of the camp, an undercover military operation was underway in which Israeli soldiers were shooting at suspects who were trying to make a getaway.
