Israeli soldiers continued their invasions and acts of collective punishment against the village of Kobar, northwest of the central West Bank city of Ramallah, and shot one Palestinian with an expanding bullet.
The Palestinian Health Ministry in Ramallah said the soldiers shot the Palestinian with the illegal “Toto” expanding bullet in his leg, before he was rushed to a hospital.
On Friday at dawn, dozens of soldiers invaded Kobar village, abducted three Palestinians, and took measurements of the family home of Mohammad Tareq Dar Yousef, 17, who was killed following the fatal stabbing incident in Adam illegal colony, in preparation for demolishing the property.
Mohammad was killed after he allegedly carried out a stabbing attack in Geva Binyamin (Adam) Israeli colony, killing one Israeli, identified as Yotam Ovadia, 31, and wounding two others before he himself was killed by an armed paramilitary settler.
The village remains under a strict Israeli military siege, especially after the army placed sand hills on the main road between Kobar and Borham village, since the fatal stabbing attack in Adam illegal Israeli colony.
Following the fatal incident, Israeli “Defense Minister” Avigdor Lieberman decided to expand Adam colony by approving the construction of 400 new units on Palestinian lands, in yet another act of illegal collective punishment.
