AL-KHALIL, (PIC)-- Israeli occupation forces (IOF) willfully shot at two Palestinians then arrested them while sitting in their car in Al-Khalil without any justification other than opening the window of their car.

One of the two Palestinian detainees, who were wounded in the incident last Thursday, relayed their story of what had happened.

Mohammed Al-Ja'bari said on Wednesday that he was sitting with his cousin in their car when four settlers approached their car and started harassing them.

One of the settlers asked them to open the window of the car, Ja'bari recalled, adding that when he did so IOF soldiers manning a nearby roadblock started firing at the car hitting him with shrapnel in the head while his cousin was hit with two bullets in the head and back. He added that his cousin remained unconscious for two days and was still in hospital.

The Palestinian prisoner's association, whose lawyer visited Ja'bari and conveyed his version of what had happened, held the Israeli occupation authority fully responsible for the lives of both detainees.

WEST BANK, (PIC)-- Israeli occupation forces rounded up six Palestinian citizens in various areas of the West Bank at dawn Thursday at the pretext of being wanted for interrogation.

Hebrew daily Yediot Ahronot said on its website that the arrests were made in Bethlehem and Tulkarem on suspicion of involvement in anti-occupation activity.

On Wednesday, Jewish settlers from Yitzhar settlement attacked Palestinian farmers and tried to start fire in their fields in Assira Al-Qabalia, south of Nablus city.

Local sources said that Palestinian youths confronted the settlers and prevented them from starting fire.
