Welcome to Palestine Today, a service of the International Middle East Media Center,, for Wednesday, April, 19, 2017.

Palestinian youth killed by Israeli army gunfire meanwhile others more suffer effects of tear gas inhalation in separate attacks. These stories, and more, coming up, stay tuned.

Israeli soldiers shot and killed, Soheib Mashahra, 21, on Wednesday, near Etzion Junction, south of Bethlehem, in the occupied West Bank. The army claimed “he deliberately carried out a ramming attack with his car, wounding one Israeli man.

The Israeli army is claiming the young man carried out what it called “a deliberate vehicular attack,” but phototrophs from the scene, and the fact that his car crashed into the rear of an Israeli bus, indicate a normal traffic accident.

Also on Wednesday evening, Israeli soldiers invaded the town of Abu Dis, east of occupied East Jerusalem, in the occupied West Bank, and clashed with local youngsters, wounding one, and causing at least eleven to suffer the severe effects of teargas inhalation.

Moreover, Israeli soldiers abducted, on Wednesday at dawn, at least twelve Palestinians, including two teenagers, in various parts of the occupied West Bank, the Palestinian Prisoners’ Society (PPS) has reported.

Elsewhere, Israeli soldiers, accompanied by military bulldozers, invaded on Wednesday the al-‘Isawiyya town, in occupied East Jerusalem, and demolished a Palestinian farm.

The army also destroyed doors of a carwash facility and four farms, and posted demolition orders targeting two farms, car repair shop and a car dealership.

The soldiers surrounded the town before invading it, and imposed a tight siege, preventing the Palestinians from entering or leaving it.
