Four Israelis and one Palestinian were wounded in a shooting in the occupied West Bank city of Hebron on Saturday, Israeli emergency services and the military said. A security forces soldier was killed by a gunman who opened fire near a checkpoint in Hebron, the army said, as troops searched for possible accomplices.
Rescuers from Megan David Adom, the equivalent of the Israeli Red Cross, said one of the Israelis, a 50-year-old man, was “unconscious and injured in the upper body”. The other three Palestinians were less injured. The Palestinian Red Crescent said the injured Palestinian was being treated at a Hebron hospital.
Far-right Israeli MP Itamar Ben-Ghir, a candidate in the Nov. 1 legislative election on a “religious Zionism” list, said his home in Hebron, home to a radical Jewish settlement community, was the target. attack
Israeli security forces did not confirm the allegation and Israeli media, citing security sources, reported that Ben-Gvir’s home in a settlement in Hebron was not targeted. Hebron is a dust cake with a thousand Jewish settlers living among 200,000 Palestinians.
