TULKAREM (Ma’an) – A young Palestinian man was shot and seriously injured by Israeli troops near Tulkarem in the northern West Bank Thursday evening.

The victim was identified as 18-year-old Hamza Haloub. He was hit by a live gunshot to his lower chest while walking near the Jashouri factories area west of Tulkarem.

Haloub was evacuated to Thabit Thabit Hospital where medics said the bullet settled in a sensitive area between the chest and abdomen, but he was in a stable condition.

An Israeli army spokeswoman said soldiers fired at two Palestinians hurling firebombs at security forces in the area, and that soldiers opened fire confirming direct hits.

She said the suspects escaped the area.

An Israeli security source confirmed reports that one of the Palestinians was hospitalized.

So if the suspects escaped the area, why was this kid shot? The original (Arabic language) article I saw about this said that he was an innocent bystander. I'm presently living in Tulkarm, and this will be the first shooting since I moved there at the beginning of February!

Nobody is denying that violence is occurring in the West Bank. All kinds of violence . IDF violence. Settler violence. Palestinian violence. Where we differ is that you view IDF violence against the Palestinian as a self defence issue. One , is not entitled to security and self defence when they are opressing and occupying and restricting the freedom of others. Weren't the jews during the Warsaw uprising justified in using violence against the Nazi soldiers? . The evil is occupation....

Poor Israel; all what they did is build Apartheid walls around Palestinian, built on Palestinian stolen land and financed by the US. Israel have all right to keep Palestinian inside their homes, and as they see fit to protect Israelis security and keep Israelis on the sea shores of TEl Aviv happy. Israel just doing what is right, as Nazis did in Occupied Warsaw and Nazis occupied territories. ... all victims were kept behind wires and walls, and so the Palestinians. So What?

How many were injured by the firebombs? None! Perhaps we should question the veracity of the Israeli excuses whenever they kill or injure a Palestinian. If the Israelis weren't on Palestinian land none of this would be happening!
