Welcome to Palestine Today, a service of the International Middle East Media Center, www.imemc.org, Monday, September, 05, 2016.
One youth killed, four others injured, one critically during Israeli military invasions targeting West Bank communities. These stories, and more, coming up, stay tuned.
One Palestinian youth was killed by Israeli soldiers as they invaded on Monday at dawn the Shu’fat refugee camp, northeast of occupied East Jerusalem. Another youth was seriously wounded.
The Israeli army presented two conflicting narratives on the event, one talking about armed confrontations between the soldiers and armed resistance fighters in the refugee camp. Meanwhile
another story talked about an alleged attempted ramming attack, followed by a stabbing attempt, targeting the soldiers.
Medical sources later identified the slain young Palestinian man as Mustafa Nimir, 24, from the Salaam area in Anata town, northeast of occupied Jerusalem.
Palestinian medics rushed to the site, but the soldiers stopped them and prevented them from providing the needed aid to the Palestinians.
The wounded Palestinian has been identified as Ali Nimir, 28; he was shot with a live round in his thigh, and was moved to Hadassah Israeli medical center in Jerusalem. The Israeli army said one of its soldiers was injured, reportedly by Palestinian fire, during the invasion.
Elsewhere, Palestinian medical sources have reported that Israeli soldiers shot and injured, on Monday at dawn, three Palestinians in the Balata refugee camp, and Sebastia town, in the northern West Bank district of Nablus.
Clashes erupted between invading forces and Palestinian youths, who hurled stones and empty bottles on the advancing military vehicles at both locations.
Also on Monday, The Palestinian Prisoners Society (PPS) has reported that Israeli soldiers have kidnapped, overnight and earlier Monday, ten Palestinians in different parts of the occupied West Bank.
