A youth was injured, on Thursday night, when a group of armed Israeli settlers attacked a Palestinian wedding party at the village of Al Khadier, near the occupied southern West Bank city of Bethlehem. Marwan Abu Swai, in his twenties, sustained critical wounds while in attendance of the wedding, when a bullet fired by Israeli settlers hit him in his back and exited from his abdomen, medical sources reported.

Marwan was moved to Bethlehem city hospital where he underwent a surgery. At the time of this report, no more information is available regarding his current health status.

Local youth and residents clashed with the invading settlers and managed to force them out of the village.
