The guy on the right got a bullet in the head a couple of minutes after this picture was taken. As he seemed still alive, it is the photoprapher of this picture, Bilal Jawish, who could retrieve him from the battlefield the army not daring to approach him to get him out. It seems that he survived although it was not known in what condition. This happened on the 20th of May 2007.
This picture was taken by Bilal Jawich a photographer from Al Akhbar (that I thank for letting me publish it on the blog), during the recent battles of Bab el Tebbaneh in Tripoli that took place on the 12th of May. A baker has to throw bread from one side of the street to the other so as to avoid snipers shots. You can see loafs of bread on the other side where people are struggling to collect them.
