A Palestinian man this morning sustained moderate wounds after he was shot by Israeli soldiers, under the pretext of a stabbing attack in which a soldier was moderatley injured.
The shooting took place outside Efrat settlement, south of Bethlehem, central West Bank.
According to Israeli media, the Palestinian man ‘infiltrated the settlement and hid in the bushes. Around 6 a.m. he jumped out and stabbed the officer in his upper body.’
The soldier was transported to Jerusalem’s Hadassah Medical Center in Ein Kerem.
On Friday, three Palestinians were shot dead under similar pretexts, without any clear evidence of attack. In addition, one youngwoman was seriously wounded after soldiers opened fire on their car.
