Israeli forces open fire at Palestinian vehicle south of Bethlehem

BETHLEHEM, Friday, August 27, 2021 (WAFA) – Israeli forces dawn Friday opened fire at a Palestinian vehicle driving in Beit Fajjar town, south of Bethlehem in the occupied West Bank, according to security sources.

They said that Israeli forces opened fire at the car as it was driving along Route 60, a main traffic artery connecting the West Bank districts of Hebron and Bethlehem to Jerusalem, and chased it in the town, wounding the driver and two other passengers and causing it to flip over.

They added that the soldiers prevented Palestinian medics from reaching the injured and providing them with first aid. The injured were eventually detained.

Meanwhile, Israeli troops rounded up a minor after breaking into and ransacking his family house in Deir Nidham village, northwest of Ramallah.

The raid triggered confrontations that saw the soldiers opening fire at local teens who attempted to block their passage. No injuries were reported though.

Israeli police also rounded up another Palestinian from the East Jerusalem neighborhood of Bab al-Wad, as confirmed by the Wadi Hilweh Information Center.
