IDF troops shoot and wound Palestinian stone-thrower in West Bank

Emanuel (Mannie) Fabian is The Times of Israel's military correspondent.

Israeli troops shoot and wound a Palestinian man who was allegedly hurling stones at Israeli cars close to the West Bank town of Ni’lin, the military says.

The suspect was then arrested.

According to the Israel Defense Forces, the suspect was “endangering motorists” on the Route 446 highway, near the settlement of Modiin Ilit.

The man was shot in the leg and shoulder and treated by army medics at the scene before being taken to a hospital in Israel.

The IDF says he will later be questioned by the Shin Bet security agency.
