BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- Israeli media reported Thursday that guards at a checkpoint between Jerusalem and Ramallah shot a young Palestinian who was carrying a knife.
Israel's Ynet news site said civilian security guards at Qalandiya checkpoint shot the young man in the leg after he did not respond to warning fire.
The Israeli army referred inquiries to the Border Police, which guards Qalandiya. A Border Police spokesman did not immediately return a call seeking comment.
