Segment 1 of 7: The Al Durahs Under Fire

This is the opening sequence. At Time Code Reading (TCR) 1:17:06:12 we see Jamal Al Durah and the boy later identified by the cameraman Talal Abu Rahma as Jamal’s son, Muhammed, behind the barrel looking toward the Israeli position, apparently in fear. At the very beginning of the segment a shot rings out; Jamal and the boy seem to scrunch up as much as possible behind the barrel. According to ballistics experts, such as Jean-Claude Schlinger, the bullet hitting the wall above the boy and slightly behind him emanates not from the Israeli position, but from the direction of Palestinian “Pita” position.
