The young man in the green t-shirt was gingerly picking his way through the rubble caused by the latest missile strike, searching for survivors, when the first bullet hit him.
"Can you move?" asked a panicked voice, narrating the footage, as the injured man lay sprawled on the ground, shot in the hand. Crying out in pain, he tried to lift himself up. The air crackled with the sound of more shots and he was struck again. His right arm reached out towards the people filming him, imploring them for help, but they could not risk emerging from their hiding place to drag him to safety.
Then, he was shot again. His leg jerked and his head flopped to the side. He stopped moving.
