Israeli soldiers opened fire at a Palestinian girl, on Monday, at Zaatara military checkpoint, to the south of the northern West Bank city of Nablus, injuring her lightly, according to witnesses and the Palestinian Ministry of Health.

The girl, who was not immediately identified, was shot in the leg and detained without allowing Palestinian medics to treat her.

The health ministry described her injuries as light, WAFA reports.

Witnesses said the girl was standing on one side of the road when soldiers at the checkpoint started to call on her and then shot her for no apparent reason.

The Israeli army claimed the girl had acted suspiciously and when she did not heed calls by the soldiers, she was shot in the leg.
