HEBRON (Ma'an) -- A Palestinian youth was injured Saturday when an Israeli settler shot him while he was in the Palestinian village of al-Rihiya south of Hebron.

Locals told Ma'an that Ibrahim Issa Suleiman al-Tubassi was injured after an Israeli from the nearby Jewish-only settlement of Beit Haggay opened fire.

Al-Tubassi was taken to the Hebron Governmental Hospital for treatment.

Medical sources said the youth was struck in the thigh.

An Israeli military spokeswoman did not return calls seeking comment.

Beit Haggay is located on a major road south of Hebron, and is built on land confiscated from a number of neighboring Palestinian farming villages.
