Israeli soldiers critically injure Palestinian in shooting near Nablus

Jan. 2, 2015 11:46 A.M. (Updated: Jan. 2, 2015 9:27 P.M.)
NABLUS (Ma'an) -- A Palestinian was severely injured late Thursday after Israeli soldiers opened fire on him near the Burin intersection south of Nablus in the northern West Bank.

Omar al-Burini, a taxi driver who was on the scene at the time of the attack, told Ma'an that he "saw Israeli soldiers open fire at a Palestinian youth who was about to cross the Burin intersection where several Israeli soldiers were deployed at the checkpoint."

Al-Burini said that the youth, who he said was around 20 years old and was wearing a gray jacket, immediately fell to the ground after he was shot.

Palestinian medical sources told Ma'an that a Red Crescent ambulance arrived in the area to evacuate the youth to the hospital, but Israeli soldiers refused to allow medics to take him saying his injury was critical and that he needed to be taken to Israel for treatment.

Soldiers reportedly refused to identify the youth to medics.

An Israeli military spokeswoman said she was unfamiliar with the incident.
