Israeli soldiers shot, Wednesday, a Palestinian driver near Huwwara military roadblock, south of the northern West Bank city of Nablus.

Media sources said the soldiers opened fire at the car of Rad Omar Thiab, 35, from Kafr Qalil village, south of Nablus, and injured him.

In a brief statement, the Israeli army claimed that the driver “attempted to ram soldiers with his car at a bus stop.”

The Palestinian was injured and detained by the soldiers, who briefly closed the military roadblock in both directions.
