On Wednesday, Israeli soldiers fired many live rounds at a Palestinian car south of Hebron, in the occupied West Bank’s southern part, wounding a Palestinian man.

Media sources said the soldiers fired at the car while driving on a street near the illegal Beit Hagai colony, built on stolen Palestinian lands.

They added that the soldiers shot the driver, Mahmoud Akram Abu Sheikha, 22, and closed the area before moving him to the Soroka Medical Center.

The Israeli army claimed that the Palestinian driver attempted to ram the soldiers with his car, lightly wounding one, “before the soldiers neutralized him.”

After the incident, the soldiers invaded the Karma village and stormed the home of Abu Sheikha before ransacking it and interrogating his family.
