Palestinian said critically injured by IDF fire in West Bank town of Beita

A Palestinian was critically injured by live bullets in the West Bank town of Beita near Nablus, the Palestinian Authority health ministry says.

An Israeli military spokesperson says the army is looking into the incident.

Beita has seen repeated clashes between Israeli forces and Palestinians in recent weeks following the establishment of a new West Bank outpost known as Evyatar on land close to the town. Palestinians have hurled stones at troops and ignited swathes of terrain, while Israeli soldiers have responded with riot dispersal means and live bullets.

Two Palestinians were killed by Israeli fire during different clashes between Beita residents and Israeli forces in recent days.
