BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- One person, whose identity as an Israeli or Palestinian remained unknown, was lightly to moderately injured on Wednesday after being shot by Israeli forces at the Taybeh checkpoint in southwestern Tulkarem in the northwestern occupied West Bank, according to Israeli media.

Israeli media reported that Israeli police chased a “suspect” who reached the military checkpoint between Tulkarem and Israel, before soldiers deployed at the checkpoint opened fire at him, injuring him in the leg. Reports added that the incident was “criminal” in nature.

An Israeli police spokesperson said they were not familiar with the incident.
