On Thursday, Israeli soldiers seriously shot a Palestinian teenage boy and abducted five Palestinians during protests in Hebron, in the southern part of the occupied West Bank.

The soldiers attacked dozens of Palestinians marching in the Bab az-Zawiya area in the center of Hebron city and fired many live rounds, gas bombs, and concussion grenades.

Media sources said the soldiers abducted four Palestinians, including two children, after repeatedly assaulting them, causing many injuries.

Earlier Thursday, the soldiers abducted one Palestinian in the Bab az-Zawiya area and took him to an unknown destination.

In Sa’ir town, northeast of Hebron, the soldiers attacked protesters and shot a teenage boy, 16 years of age, with a live round in the abdomen, inflicting life-threatening wounds and excessive bleeding, before he was rushed to a hospital where he remains in serious condition.

The soldiers tried to abduct the wounded child and place him in one of their jeeps, but the locals and medics managed to take the child and rushed him to a hospital in Hebron.

In Bethlehem, the soldiers attacked protesters at the city’s northern entrance and fired many gas bombs, concussion grenades, and rubber-coated steel bullets.
