Welcome to Palestine Today, a service of the International Middle East Media Center, www.imemc.org, for Thursday, July 14, 2016.
Thirteen Palestinians injured, at least 10 others kidnapped as Israeli troops invade West Bank communities, These stories, and more, coming up stay tuned.
Undercover Israeli soldiers infiltrated, on Thursday evening, into the al-Mazra’a al-Gharbiyya village, north of the central West Bank city of Ramallah, shot thirteen Palestinians with live fire, and kidnapped one. Eyewitnesses said the undercover soldiers infiltrated into the village, before breaking into the home of a young Palestinian, and abducted him.
The abduction of the Palestinian led to clashes between the soldiers and many local youths; The undercover forces fired dozens of rounds of live ammunition, wounding thirteen Palestinians, including one who suffered a serious injury, the Palestinian Red Crescent said.
Moreover, Israeli soldiers shot and injured, Thursday, a young Palestinian man, and kidnapped another, after several army vehicles invaded Shu’fat refugee camp, northeast of occupied Jerusalem. The army prevented Palestinian medics from approaching the wounded man, and claimed he carried a knife. The Israeli police said the man was mildly injured, and that the soldiers shot him after they allegedly noticed that he “carried a knife.”
Clashes erupted after the soldiers invaded the refugee camp, and fired a few live rounds, rubber-coated steel bullets and gas bombs, at local youngsters who hurled stones on them.
Elsewhere, Israeli soldiers invaded, on Thursday at dawn, the southern West Bank city of Hebron, and several nearby towns, stormed homes after detonating their doors, searched and ransacked the properties, and kidnapped at least six Palestinians.
Also on Thursday at dawn, several Israeli military vehicles invaded two areas in the West Bank city of Bethlehem, searched homes, and kidnapped two Palestinians, while many suffered the effects of tear gas inhalation during clashes that erupted with the invading troops.
