Israeli military forces have shot and injured three young Palestinian men in the southern part of the occupied West Bank.
On Tuesday evening, Israeli soldiers opened fire at youths in the Tel Rumeida of al-Khalil (Hebron), situated 30 kilometers (19 miles) south of al-Quds (Jerusalem), leaving one in serious condition with gunshot wounds in his abdomen.
Witnesses said the other two Palestinians were shot in their legs.
Earlier in the day, Israeli troopers shot a young Palestinian woman after she allegedly sought to stab a soldier at the Innab checkpoint east of the West Bank city of Tulkarem.
Witnesses said Israeli forces prevented Palestinian medics from reaching the woman until she succumbed to her injuries.
The report came only hours after Israeli forces shot a Palestinian to death in the southern part of West Bank over what they said was an attempted stabbing attack on Israeli settlers.
Israeli police said the unnamed Palestinian, who was purportedly armed with a knife, approached a hitchhiking spot near the illegal Gush Etzion settlement before being fatally shot by an Israeli soldier. There were no Israeli casualties in the incident.
Tensions between Palestinian protesters and Israeli forces in the occupied West Bank and the Gaza Strip continue unabated. The wave of unrest was triggered by Israel’s imposition in August of restrictions on the entry of Palestinian worshipers into the al-Aqsa Mosque compound in East al-Quds (Jerusalem).
Palestinians are also angry at increasing violence by Israeli settlers, who frequently storm the al-Aqsa Mosque, the third holiest site in Islam. The Palestinians say the Tel Aviv regime seeks to change the status quo of the compound.
More than 100 Palestinians and nearly 20 Israelis have been killed in the recent wave of clashes between Palestinians and Israelis since the start of October.
