Israeli soldiers shot, late on Friday at night, a young Palestinian man in the al-‘Isawiya town, in the center of occupied East Jerusalem, after the army invaded it, and abducted him.

Media sources in Jerusalem said the soldiers abducted Mohammad Fathi Abu al-Hummus, 27, after shooting him with a rubber-coated steel bullet.

They added that dozens of soldiers invaded the town, and fired many live rounds, rubber-coated steel bullets and gas bombs at Palestinians who protested the invasion.

Many Palestinian youngsters hurled stones and empty bottles at the invading army jeeps, while more soldiers invaded the town, escalating tension until late night hours.

The soldiers also fired at many Palestinians, holding a procession near the main entrance of Shu’fat refugee camp, north of the city.

In addition, the soldiers attacked many Palestinians, who gathered in Bab al-‘Amoud (Damascus Gate) area, chanted against the ongoing occupation, and in solidarity with the Gaza Strip.

The soldiers chased many nonviolent protesters near Sultan Suleiman Street, and Bab as-Sahera (Herod’s Gate), but were unable to abduct any of them.
