Israeli soldiers shot, on Thursday at night, a young Palestinian man near Ein al-Sultan refugee camp, in the West Bank city of Jericho to the east of the Jordan River.

Media sources said several army jeeps invaded the main road near the refugee camp, leading to protests, and fired live rounds, gas bombs, and concussion grenades at Palestinians, protesting the invasion.

They added that one Palestinian was shot with a live round in the abdomen before he was rushed to a local hospital, while several residents suffered the effects of teargas inhalation.
