Israeli soldier shoots Palestinian youth in head

UMMATIMES - A Palestinian youth was shot in the head by Israeli soldiers on Wednesday in the northern West Bank. This was said by an eye witness.

Speaking to Anadolu Agency, eyewitnesses said the young man was injured during a protest against the construction of a settlement post on Palestinian land in Jabal Sabih in the Beita district of Nablus. The injured Palestinian was rushed to hospital and is in critical condition.

International law regards the West Bank and East Jerusalem as occupied territories and considers all Jewish settlement building activity there illegal.
