NABLUS (Ma'an) -- Two Palestinians suffered gunshot wounds in clashes with Israeli settlers and soldiers in separate incidents in the northern West Bank on Thursday, an official said.

Dozens of residents of Yitzhar settlement clashed with Palestinians who were playing in the snow in the nearby Urif village, south of Nablus, settler-monitoring official Ghassan Daghlas said.

Israeli forces arrived at the scene and tried to persuade the Palestinian to leave, but they refused, he said.

Tareq Zedan al-Safad,i 22, was shot in a live bullet in his leg in the clashes, and was transferred to Rafida hospital in Nablus.

An Israeli army spokeswoman said Palestinians had approached the settlement and threw rocks at Israeli forces, who responded by firing warning shots.

Meanwhile in nearby Qusra village, settlers from the Esh Kodesh outpost fired on Palestinians, and Samer Masameer 26, was shot in the leg, Daghlas said.

The army spokeswoman said there was mutual rock-throwing between Israeli settlers and Palestinians in the area.

Two hundred Arabs approached the village, smiled and invited Israelis to engage in a snowball fight, for fun! The snowballs, it turned out, hid rocks inside. Israelis defended themselves and fought back. Of course, as usual, Maan doesn't tell the full story.

- Robert-1's comment is NOT fair to MAAN News that DID "tell the full story", since Maan did report that "Palestinians approached the settlement and threw rocks", BUT
- MAAN's story is also NOT fair to Maan's readership, since it is probably
UNTRUE, that "settlers from the Esh Kodesh fired IN nearby Qusra village,"
AND A RETRACTION should be printed regarding the location, where the truth is likely all "FIRING " took place OUTSIDE ESH KODESH (in self-defence),
and NOT INSIDE QUSSRA.

To Robert Haymond #1 'Two hundred Arabs approached the village, smiled and invited Israelis to engage in a snowball fight, for fun! The snowballs, it turned out, hid rocks inside. Israelis defended themselves and fought back.' You gotta work on your lying skills. This isn't very convincing.

To JoeUSA #4 'Israelis fire warning shots? Is that why two unarmed people got shot in the leg?' In Israel, 'warning shots' always go into meat.

Don't be so hard on ever lying Robert Haymond. He is a member of the Israeli Nazi party Israel Beitenu.

To Terry #11 '...He is a member of the Israeli Nazi party Israel Beitenu.' He makes me want to vomit. It's depressing to realize he's of the same species as the rest of us. The utter, shameless dishonesty, and the poorly concealed viciousness...

# 12 - Robert Hammond's "poorly concealed viciousness" - not at all concealed from where I sit. Very much out in the open.
