Israeli troops shot and injured two Palestinian workers on Monday, at a military checkpoint near Hebron (Al-Khalil), the official Palestinian news agency WAFA reported.

Palestinian security sources told WAFA that Israeli soldiers opened fire at Palestinian workers trying to reach their workplaces inside Israel, at the al-Dhahiriya (Meitar) checkpoint.

Two workers, from the Hebron district, were taken to a hospital in Israel.

The Israeli government recently gave the army and police the right to open fire at Palestinians at will, including shoot-to-kill, without having to worry about repercussions.
