Updated: Earlier Sunday, Israeli soldiers shot four Palestinians and abducted two, including one of the wounded, in Tubas city, in the northeastern part of the occupied West Bank.
Media sources said several army jeeps invaded the city, leading to protests, before the soldiers fired many live rounds, rubber-coated steel bullets, and gas bombs.
The head of the Tubas office of the Palestinian Prisoners’ Society (PPS), Kamal Bani Odah, said the soldiers shot Ashraf Ra’ed Daraghma, 20, and abducted him without allowing Palestinian medics to approach him.
He added that the soldiers also invaded and searched homes before abducting another young man.
Mohammad Samara, the director of Tubas Turkish Governmental Hospital, said Palestinian Red Crescent Medics provided treatment to three Palestinians who were shot with live rounds in the legs, especially the knee, and moved them to a hospital.
Samara added that the three Palestinians suffered moderate-but-stable injuries and said the bullets went through the knee area of two of the wounded Palestinians, but the third required surgery because the bullet remained lodged in his knee.
In related news, the soldiers invaded Tuqu town, east of Bethlehem, stormed and searched several homes, and summoned a young man, Bara’ Raed al-‘Amour, for interrogation at the Etzion military base and security center south of the city.
