BEIT UMMAR, PALESTINOW.COM — Israeli soldiers shot, Wednesday, one Palestinian teenager, and abducted him along with another teen, in Beit Ummar, north of Hebron, in the southern part of the occupied West Bank.
Palestinian activist, Mohammad Ayyad Awad, said the soldiers ambushed several residents walking in the ath-Thaher area in Beit Ummar, and opened fire at them, wounding a teenager, identified as Amro Arafat Za’aqeeq, 17.
He added that the teen was shot with a live round in his leg, before the soldiers forced him in their jeep, and drove to the nearby Karmie Tzur colony, which was built on illegally confiscated private Palestinian lands.
