On Tuesday morning, one Israeli colonizer was injured in a shooting incident near the Oyun Al-Haramiyya area near Ramallah, in the central part of the occupied West Bank.
Israeli sources said the shooting was carried out from a speeding Palestinian taxi and targeted a group of Israeli joggers, including soldiers and colonizers, marking Israel’s “Memorial Day.”
The Israeli army said one man sustained moderate-but-stable wounds to the arm and was fully conscious when he received treatment from the medics before they took him to a medical center for further checkups.
The army and police began a massive search campaign in the area, looking for the car, and installed many roadblocks.
The WAFA Palestinian News Agency said the soldiers also fired several live rounds at a Palestinian Taxi before forcing the passengers out and searching it.
WAFA added that the army closed the iron gate at the entrance of the Al-Jalazoun refugee camp, and completely sealed the area between Oyun Al-Haramiyya and Ein Siniya Junction, while more soldiers and police officers were deployed in the area.
On Monday, a paramilitary Israeli colonizer killed Hatem As’ad Abu Najma, 39, after he reportedly injured seven Israelis in what the army called a ramming attack in occupied Jerusalem, in the West Bank.
Earlier Monday, Israeli soldiers invaded the Aqabat Jaber refugee camp in Jericho city in the northeastern West Bank, killed Suleiman Ayesh Hussin Oweid, 20, before taking his corpse away, injured three, and abducted three others, including two siblings.
