Israeli Military Shoots Young Palestinian Man Near Jerusalem

Israeli soldiers shot and injured young Palestinian man Saturday night in the village of Qatanna, northwest of Jerusalem. Local sources reported that the soldiers abducted him while he lay bleeding on the ground.

According to the Palestinian Wafa News Agency, Yaaqoub Mohammad Faqih, 20, was shot in the foot by the Israeli soldiers. The circumstances around the shooting are unknown.

The soldiers, according to eyewitnesses, then surrounded the young man as he lay bleeding from the gunshot wound and, instead of taking him by ambulance to a hospital, loaded him into a military vehicle and took him away.

His location remains unknown, although his family suspects he was taken to an Israeli military base.

According to the Applied Research Institute of Jerusalem (ARIJ), “Since the Israeli occupation of the West Bank and the Gaza Strip in 1967, consecutive Israeli governments have followed a policy of confiscating Palestinian lands to build Israeli settlements, bypass roads to connect settlements, and military bases.
