Israeli soldiers shot, on Monday evening, a Palestinian teen in the al-Hawawer area, north of Hebron, in the southern part of the occupied West Bank.

Media sources said the soldiers shot Omar Yousef ‘Allan, 18, from Halhoul town and detained him despite his wounds, in addition to preventing the Palestinian medics from reaching him.

The sources added that the medics eventually managed to get to the wounded teen and provided him with the needed treatment before placing him in the ambulance; however, the soldiers attacked the medics and took the injured teen away.

The Israeli army claimed it fired at three Palestinians suspected of throwing Molotov cocktails at the military and injured one of them.

It added that the wounded Palestinian was taken to a hospital and will be released to be moved to an interrogation facility.
