Two injuries from Israeli military gunfire south of Bethlehem

BETHLEHEM, Monday, March 8, 2021 (WAFA) – Israeli forces Monday evening shot and injured two Palestinians during confrontations in al-Khader town, south of Bethlehem city, according to WAFA correspondent.

He said that Israeli soldiers forced their way into the town, sparking violent confrontations.

Soldier opened fire towards local youngsters, hitting one protestor in the foot and seriously injuring another in the pelvis.

Both casualties were rushed to hospitals for urgent treatment.

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.
