On Tuesday morning, Israeli troops shot and wounded a young man from the Palestinian village of Arabeh near the gate through the Israeli Annexation Wall at Dahr al-Abed, southwest of Jenin.
According to the Palestinian news agency Wafa, the Palestinian was identified as Saif Iyad Wajih Al-Ardah.
Israeli forces shot him in the foot near the gate through the Annexation Wall. Before he was allowed to be treated by medics, Israeli troops interrogated him, and transported him to the Barta’a military checkpoint.
From there, following his interrogation, he was handed over to Palestinian medics with the Red Crescent Society. He was taken to the Khalil Suleiman Governmental Hospital in Jenin for treatment.
The wounding of the young man followed another incident Tuesday morning in which Israeli soldiers fired tear gas at Palestinians waiting to cross through the Israeli military checkpoint at the Nazlet Issa gate through the Annexation Wall north of Tulkarem, in the northern West Bank.
In that incident, Israeli troops shot tear gas into the crowd, hitting several Palestinian workers directly – wounding five, and causing dozens more to suffer from inhalation.
This follows a number of similar attacks on Palestinian civilians waiting to cross through gates in the Israeli Annexation Wall, most significantly at the Zab al-Abed gate southwest of Jenin, in the northern West Bank, in which 11 workers have been wounded by live ammunition fired by Israeli soldiers over the past two months.
