Israeli soldiers shot, on Tuesday morning, a Palestinian worker near Barta’a town, southwest of the northern West Bank city of Jenin.

Eyewitnesses said the soldiers shot Rafat Yasser Salah, 27, from Burqa village, northwest of the northern West Bank city of Nablus, while crossing the gate of the illegal Annexation Wall.

They added that the young man was shot with a live round in his left leg, and was rushed to Khalil Suleiman governmental hospital, in Jenin, suffering a moderate injury.

It is worth mentioning that the soldiers frequently attack Palestinian workers trying to cross the gate, and have injured dozens in addition to abducting many others.

Also Tuesday, the soldiers abducted 24 Palestinians, including many former political prisoners, in the occupied West Bank.
