Palestinian shot in Hebron after grabbing soldier's gun

Feb. 5, 2015 7:25 P.M. (Updated: Feb. 7, 2015 2:35 P.M.)
BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces shot and injured a Palestinian man in Hebron on Thursday evening after he attempted to grab a soldier's gun, Israel's army said.

An Israeli army spokeswoman said the man was shot in the lower extremities after trying to grab a soldier's gun near the illegal settlement of Kiryat Arba.

Israeli media said the unidentified man was treated at the scene for moderate injuries and taken to the Shaare Zedek hospital in Jerusalem.

A 1997 agreement split Hebron into areas of Palestinian and Israeli control.

The Israeli military-controlled H2 zone includes the ancient Old City, home of the revered Ibrahimi Mosque -- also split into a synagogue referred to by Jews as the Cave of the Patriarchs -- and the once thriving Shuhada street, now just shuttered shops fronts and closed homes.
