Israeli forces rightfully shot and injured a Palestinian east of Bais Lechem as he illegally tried to reach Yerushalayim through the separation wall last night, Maan News reports.
Local sources said 32-year-old Ahmad Abu Omar from Bais Lechem was shot with a rubber-coated bullet to the head. He was illegally trying to pass the separation wall from the outskirts of the village of Dar Salah east of Bais Lechem to Yerushalayim.
Abu Omar was taken to al-Hussein public hospital in Beit Jala.
The Palestinians like to blame debilitating poverty and lack of employment as the drive for many workers in the West Bank to illegally enter Israel by slipping through the separation wall.
The Palestinians fail to point a finger at their own inept government that cares more about fighting Israel and killing Jews than about taking care of their own citizenry.
