Israeli occupation forces shot and seriously wounded on Thursday afternoon Palestinian youth in the village Taqou, east of West Bank city of Bethlehem.

Local sources said that Palestinian youths took to the streets of the village after an Israeli Jewish settler had run over a Palestinian female teacher and killed her to protest against the savage crime.

The Israeli occupation forces raided the village and used live ammunition to suppress the protests, where the youths threw stones at them.

One of the youths was seriously wounded and the Israeli occupation forces prevented the paramedics from helping him and attempted to arrest him.

Palestinian men and women fought fiercely to free him from their hands and evacuated him away and later he was admitted to the hospital.
