Health Ministry in Ramallah says one man seriously wounded, others lightly hurt

Israel Defense Forces soldiers opened fire on Palestinians who were burning tires outside the village of Deir Abu Mashal, near the settlement of Neve Tzuf in the central West Bank. Sources in the Palestinian Authority Health Ministry in Ramallah report that four people were injured, one seriously and the others slightly.

The wounded were evacuated to nearby Salfit Hospital.

On October 26, a Palestinian man was killed in clashes with Israeli soldiers in the village of Al-Mazra’a, also in the vicinity of Ramallah. The Red Crescent ambulance service reported at the time that nine people had been shot with live fire, and two were badly injured.

Two days before that incident, Palestinian media reported that a 23-year-old man named Mohammed Bisharat was killed in clashes in which stones were thrown at IDF soldiers in the village of Tammun in the West Bank. According to reports, Bisharat was fatally injured from gunshots and died later, and three other Palestinians were injured.
