Nobel Peace prize winner hurt by IOF's rubber coated steel bullets as she was protesting the wall at the palestinian village of Bil'in

Mairead Corrigan McGuire received the Nobel Peace prize in 1976 for her work for peace in Northern Ireland. She was recently participating in a conference in the village of Bil'in when she joined to the weekly held peaceful protest against the wall. This protest has been going on for a long time uniting every week come 100 peace activists, Israelis, Palestinians, and international activists. And every week the Israeli Occupation Forces (IOF)react by harsh intimidation, sometimes shooting rubber coated steel bullets at protesters. The rubber coated steel bullets came into question many times as they are not only meant to repel a protest but they can kill at close range.

Here is the video of Ms McGuire found on Mont Asbury:
