Israeli forces shoot Palestinian youth attempting to prevent another's detention

BETHLEHEM (Ma’an) -- A Palestinian youth was wounded by Israeli forces at a checkpoint in the occupied West Bank district of Jerusalem on Thursday morning after he reportedly tried to help another Palestinian being detained by Israeli border police.

Fatah movement spokesman Thaer Fasfous told Ma'an that Israeli soldiers opened fire at a Palestinian youth and detained another at a checkpoint near the refugee camp of Shufat north of occupied East Jerusalem.

Israeli police spokeswoman Luba al-Samri said in a statement that Israeli forces were detaining a youth suspected of involvement in “terrorist activities” as locals attempted to prevent the detention.

Israeli forces then saw a “suspicious” youth reportedly approaching them with a knife and “neutralized” him using live fire.

Al-Samri said that no Israelis were injured in the case.

She added that the young Palestinian was lightly wounded and transferred for medical treatment, and that Israeli forces left the area with the other Palestinian who had initially been detained.
