PPS: Palestinian wounded by Israeli forces on Wednesday in stable condition


RAMALLAH (Ma’an) — Wounded Palestinian prisoner Omar Nathir Ibrahim al-Barghouthi, who is currently being held at the Tel HaShomer Hospital in Israel, was reported to be in stable condition despite his critical injuries, the Palestinian Prisoner’s Society (PPS) said in a statement on Thursday.

Al-Barghouthi, 26, from the village of Abud in the central occupied West Bank Ramallah district was shot and injured while driving near Abud after Israeli forces fired shots at his vehicle, which an army spokesperson claimed was in response to shots being fired from al-Barghouthi’s car towards Israeli forces.
A PPS lawyer said that al-Barghouthi, was suffering from severe injuries across his body, including his right foot, right arm, chest, stomach, and head. It remained unclear if the injuries were gunshot wound.
According to PPS, al-Barghouthi underwent several surgeries from Wednesday evening to Thursday morning.
Clashes erupted in Abud Thursday evening between local youth and Israeli forces for the second time in 24 hours, with Israeli soldiers opening live fire, and firing rubber-coated steel bullets and tear-gas bombs at youths and houses, while youths threw rocks and empty bottles.
