Israeli soldiers shot, on Monday evening, a young Palestinian man from the Suwwana neighborhood, in the Old City of occupied East Jerusalem, and abducted him while bleeding.

Eyewitnesses said the soldiers fired several live rounds at a group of young men, wounding one in the thigh, before abducting him.

The young man was later moved to an Israeli hospital, where he is receiving treatment in a room guarded by soldiers.

After the shooting, undercover Israeli soldiers invaded the neighborhood, before they and regular units invaded and searched many Palestinian homes.
