Israeli troops injure young Palestinian man in East Jerusalem

JERUSALEM (Ma'an) – Israeli forces shot with a rubber-coated bullet a young Palestinian man while he was walking out of his house in the East Jerusalem neighborhood of al-Tur on Saturday evening, the victim's uncle said.

Husam Abu Sneina told Ma'an that his nephew Saad Addin Samir Abu Sneina, 20, was leaving his house when an Israeli soldier fired a rubber-coated bullet at him injuring him in his eyebrow. The soldier was standing only a few meters away along with a group of soldiers, the victim's uncle said.

Abu Sneina was taken to Shaare Zedek medical center in West Jerusalem.

A relative says his family will file a complaint against the Israeli forces who were "firing rubber-coated bullets haphazardly in the neighborhood for no reason."
