Welcome to Palestine Today, a service of the International Middle East Media Center, www.imemc.org, for Wednesday, September 9th, 2015.
Palestinian civilian critically injured by an Israeli bomb in Gaza, and in the West Bank settlers attacks leave injured civilians. These stories, and more, coming up, stay tuned.
Palestinian medical sources in the Gaza Strip have reported, on Wednesday at dawn, that a young man was hospitalized at the Shifa Medical Center, west of Gaza City, after an Israeli unexploded ordnance detonated near him, causing life-threatening wounds.
The sources said the young man suffered wounds to most parts of his body, and is currently at the Intensive Care Room, in a very serious condition.
Dozens of Palestinians have been killed and injured, by Israeli unexploded ordnances, in different parts of the Gaza Strip, especially after Israel’s massive aggression and onslaught on the coastal region in the summer of 2014.
Elsewhere, A group of Israeli extremists, living in illegal Israeli colonies in the northern West Bank district of Nablus, burnt on Wednesday at dawn, Palestinian olive orchards and farmlands, belonging to residents of Burin village, south of Nablus.
Local sources said the burnt orchards are close to the Yitzhar illegal Israeli colony, built in privately owned Palestinian lands. Palestinian villagers rushed to their lands to extinguish the fire.
Israeli soldiers arrived on the scene and were seen talking with the fanatics who burnt the orchards, but did not apprehend any of them. On Tuesday night three residents were injured, after Israeli extremists hurled stones on their car, while driving back home in Jenin coming from the nearby Nablus city.
on Wednesday morning, Israeli soldiers threw teargas grenades on the Kharabtha Boys School, near Ramallah in central West Bank, causing tens of suffocation cases among students.
Earlier on Wednesday at dawn, Israeli soldiers kidnapped nine Palestinians in different parts of the occupied West Bank, during military invasions targeting various Palestinian communities, and uprooted agricultural lands near Hebron.
Also on Wednesday at dawn, soldiers kidnapped three young Palestinian men after breaking into their homes, in the at-Tour village, in occupied East Jerusalem; the three are former political prisoners.
