Israeli soldiers shot, on Monday, a Palestinian day laborer in Wadi al-Hummus area, near the al-Khass and an-No’man villages, east of the West Bank city of Bethlehem, as he was trying to enter Jerusalem for work.

Mohammad Awad, the head of the Emergency Unit at the Palestinian Red Crescent (PRC) in Bethlehem, said the soldiers shot Mahmoud Salah, 31, with a live round in his right leg.

He added that Red Crescent medics rushed to the scene, and provided the man with the needed urgent aid, before moving him to Beit Jala government-run hospital, in Bethlehem. Salah’s wounds were described as moderate-but-stable.

It is worth mentioning that many Palestinian workers have been shot, and others abducted, by the soldiers in this area, and various parts of the Bethlehem district.

In addition, the soldiers invaded the town of al-Yamoun, west of the northern West Bank city of Jenin, abducted a young Palestinian man, and invaded a car wash facility.
