RAMALLAH, A Palestinian teenager was shot and injured by live gunshots in his foot and arm today as Israeli occupation forces cracked down on Palestinian protesters demonstrating against the Israeli colonial settlements, according to witnesses. The protest took place in the village of Kafr Malek, east of Ramallah.
Israeli soldiers fired live gunshots at the protesters to disperse them, injuring an 18-year-old protester in his foot and arm.
The teenager was briefly detained by the occupation forces, and was later handed over to a Palestinian ambulance. He was moved to nearby Palestine Medical Complex in Ramallah for medical treatment.
The village witnesses protests almost on a weekly basis against the Israeli colonial settlement enterprise and land grab policy.
