Earlier Monday, Israeli soldiers invaded Bethlehem city and nearby Beit Jala, in the occupied West Bank, seriously shot a young Palestinian man and abducted a man from his home.

Several army jeeps invaded Beit Jala city, leading to protests near the Beit Jala governmental hospital before the army fired many live rounds, rubber-coated steel bullets, gas bombs, and concussion grenades.

Medical sources said the soldiers shot a young man, 20, with expanding bullets before he was rushed to surgery at the medical center.

The sources added that while the surgeons were operating on the young man, they found dozens of fragments in the chest cavity and lungs and a bullet in the arm.

The hospital then rushed the young man to the Al-Ahli Hospital in Hebron, in the southern West Bank, due to the seriousness of his wounds.

The Health Ministry said the young man suffered severe tissue damage to the right lung and chest due to the expanding rounds.

In related news, the soldiers invaded an area near Manger Square in Bethlehem and abducted Hassanein Hasan Shouka, 62, from his home.

The soldiers also fired several live rounds, gas bombs, and concussion grenades during protests following the invasion.

In related news, the soldier abducted at least twenty Palestinians across the occupied West Bank, including fathers and their sons.
