BETHLEHEM (Ma’an) -- Israeli forces shot and injured a Palestinian east of Bethlehem in the southern occupied West Bank as he tried to reach Jerusalem through Israel’s separation wall on Sunday evening.

Local sources said 32-year-old Ahmad Abu Omar from Bethlehem was shot with a rubber-coated steel bullet to the head. He was trying to pass the separation wall from the outskirts of the village of Dar Salah east of Bethlehem to work in Jerusalem.

[...] Debilitating poverty and lack of employment drive many workers in the occupied West Bank to enter Israel unlawfully by slipping through gaps in Israel’s separation wall.
