BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- Two Palestinian youths were shot and injured by Israeli forces early Friday at a checkpoint east of Jerusalem in the West Bank, witnesses said.

Witnesses told Ma'an that 19-year-old Jawhar Nasser Jawhar was injured by Israeli fire at al-Zaayyem checkpoint near Abu Dis.

Jawhar remains in Israeli custody, and was not immediately given access to first aid, witnesses said.

Additionally, Adam Abd al-Raouf Halabiya, 17, was injured in the incident.

His mother Svetlana, a Ukrainian citizen, said that her son was admitted to an Israeli hospital.

She spoke to Ma'an via telephone from the hospital, where she said she was being prevented from seeing her son. She said Israeli soldiers instructed doctors not to answer her questions about his health.

Israeli forces also threatened to deport her to Ukraine, she said.

An Israeli Border Police spokesman was unable to be reached for comment.

How about providing the context within which the shooting took place? You know like were there clashes, was there an argument, protests? Were they stopped in a car, were they trying to make a hole in the wall etc. ?????

Checking on Israel for the day is kind of like going into a fine restaurant. 'And for les atrocites du jour we have...' Lately, though, they've been unimaginative. Just shootings -- day after day. I'm getting a hankering for runover child, or perhaps another lynching-while-the-police-look-on. A torched church? Come on, guys. A little variety, huh? BEAT UP the Palestinian Premier? Think outside the box...

LOTS - hundreds and perhaps thousands - of people go through a checkpoint in a day. These two people got shot and - almost certainly - something happened to precipitate the events.This article does not present the whole story - a matter of bad reporting. BTW, Colin, such a comment reflects badly on only one person - you.

As 18,000 Palestinians starve to death in Yarmouk Ma'an propagandises on behslf of 2 men who tried to murder Israelis with Molotovs. I wish that I could say that Im suprised. Colin: You live in a nation where the military burns wounded Arabs and yet you thinknyou can point your finger at others. You are an ignorant hypocrite.

Truth is rare here on Ma'an, so you are to be commended: -1- These "2 men tried to murder Israelis with Molotovs", and were killed in self-defense, which is hardly news in a region where such murder attempts are essentially a daily routine, and -2- Instead of covering real news, like "18,000 starving to death in (Syria's) Yarmouk, Ma'an propagandizes 2 (would-be-murders) men" !!

You should STUDY the HISTORY on the Intifadas 1 & 2, before writing such nonsense, where in LIFE: - Intifada 1 claimed 10 Palestinians (1,000) lives for every 1 Jew, & - Intifada 2 claimed 3 Palestinians lives (3,000) for every 1 Jew, and in RESULTS - Palestinian infrastructure was almost completely destroyed, much like Lebanon's and Gaza's was after wars with Israel, and - Israel infrastructure built The Security Fence, so * FUTURE INTIFADAS WILL CRUSHED, without Jewish costs.

The truth is that there is a usurper of land and wall obscures the sunlight unbearable madeby the hands of the occupiers And Israeli soldiers walking around and taunting people in the streets There are people, named the Palestinian people are steadfast on their land despite the abuse of the invaders and settlers. But for this story: Young resisted or did not resist the presence of the occupation on their land, the occupier deal with them in a manner known per invaders and occupiers.
