Description

During a pro-Palestinian demonstration in the Jordan Valley in May 2011, Jalal Ashqar was shot by an unidentified person. He recieved a bullet that remained in his sacral bone. Jordanian authorities said they were investigating to know the perpetrator, but no probe result was ever announced. At The Jordan Times, we were the first media to cover his then-untold story.
