JENIN, January 11, 2016 (WAFA) – Israeli troops on Monday shot and seriously injured a Palestinian youth at Mevo Dothan, an Israeli military checkpoint at Jenin-Tulkarm road, according to security sources.

The youth, identified as Zaid al-Ashqar from the village of Seida near Tulkarm, was left to bleed on the ground as Israeli soldiers denied access of medical teams to the scene.

Israeli troops have killed 152 Palestinians since the beginning of unrest in the occupied Palestinian Territory in early October 2015, according to the Ministry of Health. Over 15,000 others have been reportedly injured.
