Israeli Soldier Dies of Wounds, Palestinian Shot by Israeli Occupation Soldiers, West Bank Population Punished by Continuous Total Closure
Second Israeli occupation soldier dies from Islamic Jihad's border ambush
A second Israeli occupation soldier died of
wounds he sustained on Thursday when Palestinian fighters bombed an
Israeli military jeep on the border with the Gaza Strip.
A Palestinian was shot by Israeli occupation
forces stationed at the Kisufim military site, east of the town of Al-Qarara,
on Sunday, Palestinian medical sources said.
The Israeli government decided to extend the
comprehensive closure on the West Bank for at least 24 hours on Sunday,
which is a collective punishment to the entire Palestinian population.
The government will review the situation again on Monday.
