Israeli forces wound Palestinian in shooting near Jabaliya

GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces shot and injured a Palestinian man near Jabaliya in the northern Gaza Strip on Friday.

Spokesman for the Gaza Strip Ministry of Health Ashraf al-Qidra said that a 24-year-old man was shot by Israeli forces east of Jabaliya and was subsequently transferred to Kamal Adwan Hospital.

Al-Qidra described the injuries sustained by the man as "moderate."

An Israeli military spokeswoman said that "a crowd of Palestinians gathered in a prohibited area," and as a result "soldiers tried to distance them using riot dispersal means and warning shots."

She added that soldiers then opened fire toward the lower extremities of a "main instigator" and identified a hit.

Separately, Israeli forces opened fire on a demonstration around noon near southeast of Gaza City that had been called for in support of the Al-Aqsa mosque compound by the coalition "Palestine Youth Coalition."
