Israeli occupation forces also stormed multiple villages and towns in Jenin.

A Jewish settler armed with a rifle shot and seriously injured a Palestinian youth in the old city of occupied East Jerusalem, the Quds News Network (QNN) reported.

According to Israeli media reports, the shooter was an “off-duty Israeli soldier” who also injured three other Palestinians in the incident on Wednesday.

In footage shared by QNN, at least two men in white t-shirts are seen with rifles in hand, as Israeli police rush upon the scene. The shot youth is seen on the ground as bystanders attend to him.

“All men involved in the incident were in civilian clothes and not on duty,” The Jerusalem Post reported.
