An Israeli army officer was suspended for firing on Palestinians throwing stones at a demonstration.

The incident, which occurred June 1 near the West Bank village of Nabi Saleh near Ramallah, was caught on film, and showed that the officer used live fire even though it did not appear that his life was in danger.

None of the demonstrators was hit by his bullets. The residents of Nabi Saleh demonstrate weekly against what they say is the theft of their land for the nearby settlement of Halamish. Demonstrators have been injured in previous incidents.

The Israeli army is still investigating the incident.
