BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- An Israeli border police officer shot and wounded a Palestinian man near the illegal settlement of Telem in Hebron on Monday.

Israeli police spokesman Mickey Rosenfeld told Ma'an that a Palestinian man approached a female border police officer at a base outside Hebron. After being told to stop in Hebrew and Arabic, the female officer fired a warning shot in the air.

The man then approached another a second officer in the area, who called on the suspect to stop before firing a warning shot in the air and shooting the man.

The man, who was not identified, is in a moderate to serious condition and the "background to the incident is being investigated," Rosenfeld added.

The victim was taken for medical treatment in Jerusalem.

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.

Translation: the border patrol officer shot a Palestinian. The story was then improved to an unknown extent. Further improvements will be devised as needed.

@ Colin: How do you think the soldier should have reacted?

Colin...the soldier shouldn't have been there! He should have been in Israel instead of oppressing the Palestinians!
