Armored Israeli jeeps and personnel carriers invaded the Palestinian village of Doha, west of the city of Bethlehem in the West Bank on Monday evening. Israeli troops opened fire on unarmed civilians in their homes and on the street during the invasion, injuring two.
The injured civilians were identified as Riad Al-Azza, who was hit by a piece of shrapnel in the head, and a child, Muhammad Jamil Ghanayim, had a rubber-coated bullet embedded in his foot. The injured were taken to Al-Yamama hospital in Al Khadir, south of Bethlehem.
The Israeli troops surrounded the home of Nidal Malash, who is apparently on a 'wanted list' put together by the Israeli military, composed of political dissidents and members of 'illegal' political parties in the Israeli-occupied Palestinian territories. It is unknown whether Malash was captured, but his home was badly damaged by the gunfire, according to witnesses.
