On Sunday night, Israeli soldiers shot two Palestinians and abducted one of them near the main entrance of the Al-Mughayyir village, northeast of Ramallah, in the central part of the occupied West Bank.

Media sources said the soldiers fired many live rounds at the two young men, wounding them both, before abducting one of them.

The Palestinian Health Ministry said the injured Palestinian, Ahmad Bashar Abu Alia, 18, was shot with live rounds in the shoulder and the leg before the soldiers abducted him.

The Health Ministry added that the second Palestinian suffered moderate gunshot wounds to the thigh and the chest before he was rushed to Palestine Medical Complex.

It is worth mentioning that the Israeli army continued the siege on the Al-Mughayyir village for the seventeenth day after the soldiers closed its two main entrances, forcing the Palestinians to take longer, unpaved routes to enter or leave their village.
