Israeli forces 'shot, injured' man at Bethlehem checkpoint

Jan. 5, 2012 9:44 P.M. (Updated: Jan. 5, 2012 9:44 P.M.)
BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces shot and injured a man at a checkpoint near Bethlehem on Wednesday, local radio reported.

Munqeth Moussa Rumi, from al-Eizariya in East Jerusalem, was injured in his hand and leg but refused assistance from the Palestinian Red Crescent, the ambulance service's director told Radio Bethlehem 2000.

Abdul Halim al-Jaafra said medics were informed a man was injured and sent ambulances to the area.

Rumi refused to be treated by the Red Crescent and insisted on being taken to an Israeli hospital because Israeli forces were responsible for his injuries, al-Jaafra said.

The container checkpoint was briefly closed after the incident.

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