On Thursday night, Israeli soldiers critically wounded a Palestinian with Israeli citizenship who had approached a military checkpoint near the West Bank city of Hebron.According to an investigation of the incident, the soldiers shot the man after he tried to forcibly make his way through an Israeli checkpoint in the Palestinian town of Halhul near Hebron.

This follows an incident on Tuesday, when a Palestinian was killed by Israeli soldiers at an army post near the settlement of Mevo Dotan in the northern West Bank.

According to an Israeli military spokesman, the man was shot and killed by soldiers after he opened fire on them.

But the Israeli military version contradicts eyewitness testimony. The Israeli government claims they will investigate the incident.

Two days ago, Israeli soldiers opened fire on two Palestinians approaching the border fence between Israel and the Gaza Strip.

One of the Palestinians was apparently wounded by a shell fired by a military tank.
The Israeli military said that the Palestinians were attempting to plant an explosive device near the border fence, but eyewitnesses said that the men were collecting scrap metal as a source of income.
