IMEMC & Agencies: Israeli sources reported the army shot and wounded two Palestinian youths near a “security fence” close to Jenin city, in the northern part of the occupied West Bank.
The army alleges that the two Palestinians intended to “infiltrate into Israel”, but did not provide additional information except the fact that they were unarmed.
Israeli medical sources reported that one of the wounded suffered serious injuries and was moved to an Israeli hospital in Al-Affoula, while the second who apparently suffered minor injuries was kidnapped by the army, and was taken to an unknown destination.
The harsh economic situation in the occupied territories pushes thousands of Palestinians to seek work in Israel, but the majority of them are not granted work permits an issue that pushes them to seek alternative means to enter Israel.
