Jenin – Israeli occupation forces shot and injured a Palestinian worker near the apartheid wall built on the lands of Anin village, south of the occupied West Bank city of Jenin, while he was heading to his workplace in the 1948-occupied Palestine on Wednesday morning.
Local sources reported that a Palestinain worker, who has not been identified yet, was shot and injured in the leg by Israeli gunfire near the apartheid wall while he was on his way to his workplace in the 1948-Israeli occupied Palestine early on Wednesday.
Sources also said the man was moved to a hospital to get medical treatment.
Due to the lack of job opportunities in the occupied West Bank, some Palestinians head to look for employment in Israeli-occupied Palestine. However, entrance into the Israeli-occupied Palestine requires West Bank’s Palestinians to apply for entry permits which are virtually impossible to obtain.
Thus, the workers regularly attempt to cross the apartheid Wall or such crossings, that lead to their work, without a permit.
However, while they are on their way to their workplaces, the Israeli occupation forces regularly attack them, chase them and prevent thousands from reaching their work and arrest many others.
Since 2002, ‘Israel’ has been constructing a wall that stretches for more than 700 kilometres. This wall is known as separation wall or apartheid wall. It annexes Palestinian lands inside the occupied West Bank.
Regarding the village of Anin, the apartheid wall took over 11,000 dunums of the village land.
