    Which, while I am not accusing them of being inaccurate, are noticeably vague. "Lightly wounded" means a variety of different things depending on context. Battlefield or street? The phrase "superficial injuries" has the same problem. Personally, I would not like to get shot in the foot with a rubber bullet at close range and would not consider it a minor issue. Furthermore, to be shot like that while blindfolded and bound is beyond normal violence and is just torture, plain and simple. The fact that these people are not subject to arrest, let alone the fact they haven't been kicked out of the IDF, is just sick.
