Israeli soldiers shot and injured, Friday, a young Palestinian man with a rubber-coated steel bullet in the face, near the West Bank city of Bethlehem, causing a moderate wound.

The Red Crescent Society (RCS) in Bethlehem said the Palestinian was shot in his cheek, and that the bullet exited through the other side of his face.

The RCS added that its medics provided the wounded young man with the needed urgent care, before moving him to Beit Jala Government-run hospital for further treatment.
