Israeli soldiers shot, Wednesday, a young Palestinian man with a rubber-coated steel bullet, after the army invaded Abu Shkheidim village, northwest of Ramallah, in central West Bank.

Local sources said the soldiers fired rubber-coated steel bullets and gas bombs at Palestinian youngsters, who protested the invasion, wounding one of them.

Ezzat Badwan, the mayor of Kobar nearby town, said several army jeeps invaded the al-Morouj area in the town, and inspected sheds that received demolition orders nearly two months ago.

He added that protests erupted in Abu Shkheidim during the invasion, in addition to Kobar Mazra’a al-Gharbiyya nearby villages.
