Palestinian injured by Israeli gunfire near Hebron

HEBRON, Wednesday, December 23, 2020 (WAFA) – Israeli forces dawn Wednesday shot and injured a Palestinian near Bani Nai‘m town, to the east of the occupied West Bank city of Hebron, security sources said.

They told WAFA that Israeli forces opened fire towards a Palestinian vehicle in al-Jalajel area, moderately injuring the driver before they detained him and seized his car.

Israeli forces frequently raid Palestinian houses almost on a daily basis across the West Bank on the pretext of searching for "wanted" Palestinians, triggering clashes with residents.

These raids, which take place also in areas under the full control of the Palestinian Authority, are conducted with no need for a search warrant, whenever and wherever the military chooses in keeping with its sweeping arbitrary powers.

Under Israeli military law army commanders have full executive, legislative and judicial authority over 3 million Palestinians living in the West Bank. Palestinians have no say in how this authority is exercised.
