Palestinian seriously injured in Jenin clashes taken to Israeli hospital for treatment
Rambam Hospital in Haifa confirms reports that a man injured in clashes in the West Bank city of Jenin arrived by military helicopter for treatment.
The hospital stresses in a press release that the man is not a member of the Israeli security services.
The hospital says the man was shot and is on a ventilator.
He is in serious condition, the hospital said.
Although rare, it is not uncommon for Palestinians injured in clashes to be treated by Israeli doctors, particularly if the security services wish to question them.
The man was injured during a raid by Israeli security forces on the West Bank home of the terrorist who carried out the deadly attack in Tel Aviv.
The Israel Defense Forces said Palestinian gunmen opened fire on troops operating in the city of Jenin and other nearby villages.
There were 13 Palestinians injured – the Harretz daily reports that one of the injured is a 19-year-old woman.
