Nablus man shot by Israeli forces Sunday 'undocumented worker'

April 7, 2014 12:01 P.M. (Updated: April 9, 2014 5:52 P.M.)
NABLUS (Ma'an) -- Palestinian security sources on Monday identified a man who was shot, injured, and detained by Israeli forces the night before.

The man was identified as 35-year-old Ashraf Abu al-Huda from Nablus, who his brother says is an undocumented worker who regularly travels to Israel without a permit.

Security sources told Ma'an Abu al-Huda was shot several times by Israeli border police after he allegedly hurled a Molotov cocktail at an Israeli military jeep near the village of Huwarra south of Nablus.

But the man's brother told Ma'an that Abu al-Huda left his home on Sunday to go to work in Israel.

Allam Abu al-Huda said his brother -- who is married and a father of five children -- regularly leaves for work in the evening in order to sneak through Israel's separation wall.

Witnesses said Sunday that Israeli forces shot and critically injured a man in Huwarra.

The soldiers then took the man away in a military ambulance, locals said.

The area was declared a closed military zone.

An Israeli police spokesperson did not return calls seeking comment on Sunday.
