One Israeli colonizer of the illegal Carmel colony, built on stolen Palestinian lands in Hebron, in the southern part of the occupied West Bank, was injured in a shooting incident before the soldiers closed the entire area ad initiated a massive search campaign.
According to Israeli media sources, several shots were fired at a building and a vehicle driving just three kilometers outside Carmel colony before the shooter fired more rounds at a Yeshiva building in the colony.
They said one Israeli man, 20, was injured but was conscious and communicating with the Israeli medics before he was moved to Soroka Hospital.
After the shooting, the Israeli army initiated an investigation into the incident and advised the colonizers to shelter in place.
