Medics: Israeli troops shoot, injure Palestinian worker

HEBRON (Ma'an) – Israeli troops shot and injured a young Palestinian man near al-Ramadin village south of Hebron while he was headed to work in Israel, a Red Crescent official.

According to Nasser Qabaja of the Palestinian Red Crescent Association, the victim was evacuated in an ambulance to a public hospital in Hebron after he was shot in the foot near al-Ramadin.

Medics in the hospital identified the victim as Ismail Hirzallah Mahariq, 20.

The victim arrived at the hospital with a bullet wound in his foot, and it exited from the other side. Medics said that doctors managed to stop the bleeding and stabilize the man's condition.

An Israeli army spokesman confirmed that soldiers opened fire at a Palestinian he said was tampering with the separation barrier in a village near Hebron.

But he said the soldiers who opened fire did not identify a hit, and he was unfamiliar with the reports from medics that the victim suffered a gunshot wound.

The official also said soldiers first fired warning shots in the air in line with rules of engagement.
