Several Israeli military jeeps invaded, on Tuesday evening, the town of Burin, south of the northern West Bank city of Nablus, shot and wounded one Palestinian, and kidnapped two others.Eyewitnesses said the soldiers installed a roadblock at the entrance of Burin town, and held several Palestinians while questioning them and investigating their ID cards.
They added that an argument took place between the soldiers and Palestinians held at the roadblock, before a soldier fired several rounds of live ammunition, wounding Montaser Nafe’ Mansour, 25, in his left leg.
The man was moved to the Rafidia Hospital in Nablus suffering moderate injuries.
The soldiers then kidnapped two Palestinians, including the brother of the wounded man. They have been identified as Nasr Nafe’ Mansour, 22, and Bara’ Yasser Hussein, 19.
Earlier on Tuesday at dawn, the army imposed a strict siege on Burin and declared it a closed military zone, allegedly after a number of Palestinians hurled stones at settlers’ cars driving on a bypass road near the village.
