TRUDEAU CON­DEMNS SHOOT­ING OF CANA­DIAN DOC­TOR

Edmonton Journal - - WORLD -

Justin Trudeau added his voice Wed­nes­day to the calls for an in­de­pen­dent in­ves­ti­ga­tion into the shoot­ings by Is­raeli sol­diers on the Gaza bor­der that killed 59 Pales­tini­ans dur­ing Mon­day’s mass protests. He said he was ap­palled by the shoot­ing of a Cana­dian doc­tor who was try­ing to help wounded pro­test­ers. “We are ap­palled that Dr. Tarek Loubani, a Cana­dian ci­ti­zen, is among the wounded,” he said. “Canada calls for an im­me­di­ate in­de­pen­dent in­ves­ti­ga­tion to thor­oughly ex­am­ine the facts on the ground — in­clud­ing any in­cite­ment, vi­o­lence, and the ex­ces­sive use of force.

Loubani, an emer­gency physi­cian at On­tario’s Lon­don Health Sciences Cen­tre, says he was shot Mon­day even though his team wore jack­ets iden­ti­fy­ing them as med­i­cal staff.
