Israeli soldiers shot, on Wednesday at dawn, three Palestinians, including one who suffered life-threatening wounds, and abducted two others, after the army invaded Tubas city, in northeastern West Bank.

Eyewitnesses said several army jeeps invaded Tubas before the soldiers fired a barrage of live rounds, rubber-coated steel bullets, and gas bombs at Palestinians who protested the invasion.

They added that the soldiers shot three Palestinians with live fire; two of them were shot in the pelvis and one in the arm, including one who suffered critical injuries, before local medics rushed them to a hospital in the city.

Several Palestinians suffered the effects of tear gas inhalation, before receiving the needed treatment without the need for hospitalization.

In addition, the soldiers invaded and ransacked several homes, before abducting Aseed Shafiq Kharraz, 33, and Nader Mustafa Sawafta, 47.
