Palestinian shot in leg during clashes near Yitzhar
A Palestinian man on Monday was shot in the leg when IDF soldiers opened fire on a group of rioters outside the settlement of Yitzhar.
The incident began after a separate Palestinian approached the settlement and after refusing to heed warnings was distanced by security forces.
Thereafter, a group of Palestinians descended on the area and began hurling rocks at civilians and soldiers in the settlement, to which the IDF responded with riot dispersal means.
During the confrontation, IDF soldiers identified a threat from one of the rioters and after warnings were ignored opened fire at the suspect's legs.
The Palestinian man was moderately injured by the gunfire; one Israeli civilian lightly injured by a rock thrown during the clashes.
