Palestinian security sources said that the Israeli soldiers manning the checkpoint opened heavy random fire at Palestinians who were lining up at the checkpoint. Qasem Khader, 59, was wounded with a bullet in his left leg and Ziad Shoban, 17, with a tear gas canister in his foot.

The soldiers also took prisoner two others and sealed off the checkpoint, denying passers-by access.
