Israeli soldiers shot, on Wednesday evening, a Palestinian teenage boy with a live round in the neck, at the entrance of Burqa village, northwest of Nablus, in northern West Bank.

Medical sources in Nablus said the soldiers shot Mohyeddin Abdul-Rahman Salah, 16, with a live round in the neck, causing a moderate injury, before he was rushed to Rafidia hospital.

The Palestinian was shot after the soldiers ambushed Palestinian protesters at the entrance of their village and fired live rounds at them.

In related news, the soldiers closed with iron gates the entrances of Beit ‘Einoun and Sa’ir towns, near the southern West Bank city of Hebron, after the army attacked Palestinian protesters, who hurled stones at them, while the soldiers fired gas bombs and rubber-coated steel bullets.
