According to the police, a preliminary investigation found that the security guards called on him to stop “several times” and when he ignored their warnings the guards fired towards his lower body.He was reportedly moderately injured and transferred to hospital by Magen David Adom.The circumstances of the incident are under investigation, the police added.Elsewhere in the West Bank, another four Palestinians were injured by live fire in clashes with Israeli security forces in the Dheishe refugee camp south of Bethlehem.The clashes came a day after 14-year-old Ali Abu Alayya was shot and killed by IDF troops during a protest at the entrance to the village of al-Mughayyir in the northern West Bank on Friday.Four other Palestinians taking part in the protest against a new settlement outpost in the area were injured by rubber-coated metal bullets.The Palestinian Red Crescent said that Abu-Alayya was shot in the stomach with live fire and seriously wounded. He was evacuated to Ramallah hospital in critical condition where he later died of his wounds. The Israel Defense Forces denied using live fire and said that troops had used riot dispersal means including rubber-tipped bullets at protesters who had thrown stones at soldiers, burned tires and blocked roads. “Dozens of rioters threw stones at IDF and Border Police forces, and even tried to roll large boulders and burning tires from the ridges that overlook the Alon route, risking the lives of passengers on the road,” the IDF said in a statement. “The reports of live-fire use during the riot are not true, and claims about a number of rioters injured and one killed are known.”The IDF said it was investigating the incident.Tzvi Joffre and Tovah Lazaroff contributed to this report.
