An Israeli soldier fired at a Palestinian youth, injuring him in the shoulder, in the village of Beit Ummar north of the West Bank city of Hebron, the Palestinian news agency Ma’an reported yesterday.Eyewitnesses reported that the Israeli soldier opened fire at the youth, Ameer Sabarneh, age 19, and shot him in the shoulder with a muffler revolver, which does not produce noise. He then beat Sabarneh until another soldier arrived on the scene, whereupon the soldiers took the youth in a military vehicle to an unknown destination.

Also in this village, clashes broke out after a strike was announced in solidarity with the striking detainees in Israeli jails, resulting in several residents suffering tear gas inhalation from grenades and gas bombs fired by the soldiers.
