Israeli soldiers shot, Sunday, a young Palestinian man near the gate of the illegal Annexation Wall, north of Tulkarem, in northern West Bank.

Eyewitnesses said the soldiers shot the Palestinian with a live round in one of his legs, as he was trying to cross the gate on his way to work.

Palestinian Red Crescent medics rushed to the scene and moved the young man to a hospital in Tulkarem, where his wounds have been described a stable.

The incident is one of many similar Israeli violations, as the soldiers recently many Palestinians near the gates of the illegal Annexation Wall in that area.

The wounded Palestinians were not abducted or imprisoned by the soldiers, which indicates that they did not attempt to attack the soldiers or pose any danger to them, otherwise, the army would not allow their release to Palestinian medics.

On Sunday morning, the soldiers shot and seriously injured a young Palestinian man in Tulkarem, after the army prevented many families from entering their orchards to harvest their olive trees.

The attack comes amidst seriously escalating Israeli violations against the Palestinians in their orchards, and include frequent assaults by colonialist settlers, illegally squatting on Palestinian lands.

These violations escalate during the olive harvest season, especially in lands that are isolated by the illegal Annexation Wall, or close to illegal colonies and outposts, which were built on stolen Palestinian lands.

They also include cutting, burning and uprooting trees, picking olive trees and stealing the produce, in addition to assaulting the Palestinians and forcing them out of their orchards.

Israel’s colonies in the West Bank, including occupied Jerusalem, are illegal under International Law, the Fourth Geneva Conventions, and various United Nations and Security Council Resolutions.
