BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces reported that they detained a Palestinian man on Saturday afternoon after he "opened fire towards the entrance" to the settlement of Migdal Oz south of Bethlehem.

No Israeli soldiers were wounded in the attack, which was described as being carried out with a homemade weapon.

The unidentified Palestinian assailant was "transferred to questioning," according to an Israeli army spokeswoman.

Migdal Oz is built at the entrance of Beit Fajar, a Palestinian village just south of Bethlehem.

More than 500,000 Israeli settlers live in settlements across the West Bank and East Jerusalem, in contravention of international law.

The internationally recognized Palestinian territories of which the West Bank and East Jerusalem form a part have been occupied by the Israeli military since 1967.

'...after he "opened fire towards the entrance" to the settlement of Migdal Oz south of Bethlehem. No Israeli soldiers were wounded in the attack, which was described as being carried out with a homemade weapon...' Said 'homemade weapon' wouldn't have happened to have been a slingshot, by any chance?

Really ? And what happens when the illegal settler squats and the IDF shot Palestinians ?

Again, Colin Wright sits in his illegal settlement in occupied Native America, 8000 miles away, and pretends that he knows the facts. Hey Colin - look up zipgun on your favorite search engine. And Betz...what are you doing in America? Why don't you go back to Europe where you came from?
