Medical sources reported Monday that Ahmad Ali, 59, from the southern West Bank city of Hebron, is currently in a serious condition after being shot in his neck by a Jewish settler, while another resident was shot in the leg.Mohammad Awad, a spokesman for the Popular Committee Against the Wall and Settlements, told the Maan News Agency that a settler was in his car on the main road coming from Hebron and suddenly parked beside the cemetery of the town and opened fire at local residents.

Eyewitnesses said that Israeli soldiers, who were in that area and who had a military watch tower, didn’t pay attention to what the settler had done although they had cameras inside their tower pointing at the main road and the cemetery.

The eyewitnesses added that the soldiers didn’t chase the settler who ran away and drove towards Jerusalem.

Instead of trying to apprehend the settler, the soldiers apprehended local residents and interrogated.
