Israeli forces shoot, injure Palestinian near Salfit

June 17, 2014 10:01 P.M. (Updated: June 18, 2014 8:38 P.M.)
SALFIT (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces shot and injured a Palestinian man in the Salfit district in the northern West Bank early Tuesday, Palestinian security forces said.

Palestinian security sources told Ma'an that 25-year-old Hamada Suf was shot in the foot by Israeli forces near a main road next to the village of Haris.

Suf was injured and taken to the hospital, the sources said.

An Israeli police spokesman confirmed the incident, saying that Palestinians were throwing stones at buses near the settlement of Ariel.

When police arrived at the scene, Palestinians threw stones at police forces as well, Micky Rosenfeld said.

Rosenfeld said police responded by shooting a suspect in the leg.
