Israeli forces shoot four Palestinians in northern West Bank raids

NABLUS, Thursday, June 9, 2022 (WAFA) – Israeli forces Thursday dawn shoot and injured four Palestinians in the northern West Bank districts of Nablus and Jenin, according to security sources.

They said that Israeli military vehicles stormed Nablus city, where the soldiers ransacked several houses.

During the ensuing confrontations, the heavily-armed soldiers opened fire towards local youths, wounding one by a live round in the leg.

Meanwhile, a number of military vehicles and a bulldozer stormed Jenin refugee camp and city as snipers positioned themselves on rooftops of residential buildings, triggering confrontations.

The soldiers fired live ammunition, tear gas canisters and stun grenades, hitting three young men by live rounds in the shoulder and foot.

The casualty was rushed to hospitals for 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.
