A 15-year-old Palestinian boy was shot and wounded by Israeli troops stationed at northern Gaza Strip borders with Israel on Friday, witnesses in Gaza said.
The witnesses said that Israeli soldiers stationed at one of the Israeli lookout posts on the border opened fire at Said Hamdan and moderately wounded him when he was approaching the borderline area, Xinhua reported.
They said several unemployed Palestinians approach the borderline area, near former Jewish settlements, to collect pebble and gravels, used for construction, and then sell them for living.
In the West Bank, Palestinian security sources said that the Israeli army forces detained six Palestinians during overnight raids in the northern West Bank city of Jenin and the villages of Ya'bad and Burqien.
Meanwhile, witnesses said that Jewish settlers threw stones at Palestinian vehicles near the settlement of Shilo close to the city of Ramallah, adding that two Palestinian cars were badly damaged, and no casualties were reported.
Palestinian security sources also said that the Israeli army forces dispersed by tear gas and rubber bullets a protest against the Israeli separation barrier that Israel builds in the West Bank, adding that dozens suffered suffocation.
The sources said that the Israeli army arrested an Israeli peace activist, who joined the weekly Palestinian protests against the construction of the wall and the expansion of Jewish settlements.
