HEBRON (Ma'an) -- Israeli soldiers shot and injured a Palestinian man early Thursday before taking him into custody in the town of al-Samu, south of Hebron, locals said.
Witnesses told Ma'an that Israeli soldiers shot 44-year-old Ismail Ahmad al-Hawamda in the foot at a checkpoint in the town. He received treatment at Soroka Hospital in Beersheba.
Israeli forces claim that soldiers stopped al-Hawamda at a checkpoint and opened fire after he tried to run away.
On Wednesday, Younis al-Rjoub, 18, was shot in the abdomen by Israeli forces in Kharsa south of Hebron.
An Israeli military spokeswoman said that dozens of Palestinians "hurled rocks and molotov cocktails" at Israeli forces, who responded with 'riot dispersal means and live fire."
