Palestinian teenager Ahmed Abu al-Homs, 13, poses at his family home in east Jerusalem with a mobile phone showing a picture of himself in a hospital's surgery room, where he was treated after being hit by sponge-tipped bullets used by Israeli forcesAhmed Abu al-Homs’s life changed forever as the 13-year-old was on his way to see his sister and became caught up in clashes between Palestinians and Israeli police. “Before, Ahmed was an intelligent boy, lively and dynamic,” his uncle Mehdi al-Homs said of the teenager, whose head still bears scars and stitches. Homs is among the Palestinians wounded by a new type of anti-riot bullet Israeli police began using around two years ago, rights groups say.
