JENIN (Ma’an) — Israeli troops shot and injured a young Palestinian man during clashes in the northern West Bank town of Qabatia west of Jenin on Tuesday morning, security sources said.

Palestinian security sources told Ma’an that some 40 Israeli military vehicles stormed the town at dawn firing tear-gas canisters, stun grenades and rubber-coated balls. The presence of Israeli military provoked local young men who confronted the Israeli soldiers pelting them with stones and empty bottles.

The soldiers then started to use live ammunition and as a result 20-year-old Muhammad Ali Hithnawi was shot in his left foot.

Another young man, Noah Fadel Zakarna, 21, was hurt as a result of inhaling large amounts of tear gas. The two were evacuated to Jenin’s public hospital.

Several others received field treatment after they inhaled tear gas, according to the sources.

An Israeli army spokeswoman did not immediately return a call seeking comment.
