Israeli soldiers shot and injured on Friday a 65-year-old man during clashes that took place in Kafr Malik village, near the central West Bank city of Ramallah, between local residents of the village and Israeli soldiers and settlers. The clashes took place after dozens of extremist settlers attempted to reach an illegal outpost that was recently demolished by the army.

The residents tried to prevent the settlers from reaching the area, privately owned by the villagers, leading to clashes with the settlers.

Israeli soldiers did not attempt to remove the settlers, but instead, opened fire at the local residents moderately wounding Yousef Hammad Al Qaq, 65.

The settlers left the outpost and the residents managed reach it before torching its property.
