Israeli soldiers shot, Wednesday, a Palestinian man near at Barta’a military roadblock, southwest of the northern West Bank city of Jenin; the Palestinian is the fifth to be shot in the same area in one week.

The Palestinian Red Crescent Society said the soldiers shot Abdullah Hasan Etheimar, 35, from Tulkarem in northern West Bank, with two live rounds in the left ankle and his thigh.

It added that its medics rushed the Palestinian to Khalil Suleiman Governmental hospital, in Jenin, suffering moderate wounds.

The soldiers briefly detained the young man, before allowing Red Crescent medics to provide him with the needed treatment and move him to a hospital.
The Palestinian is the fifth to be shot by the soldiers in the same area in one week.

The wounded Palestinians were not abducted or imprisoned by the soldiers, which indicates that they did not attempt to attack the soldiers or pose any danger to them, otherwise, the army would not allow their release to Palestinian medics.
