Palestinian security officer shot by Israeli gunfire in Nablus

IDF forces face Palestinian Preventive Security forces in Nablus Buttigieg says he wouldn't allow U.S. taxpayer money to pay for West Bank annexation if elected

The rare incident took place before dawn in the city of Nablus in the central occupied West Bank.

"Under certain circumstances, I think Israel has the right to retain some, but unlikely all, of the West Bank", he said.

Shortly before Israel's election in April, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said he would annex portions of the West Bank if he were reelected and earlier this month the United States ambassador to Israel David Friedman told the New York Times that Israel had the right to do so.

Friedman's comments elicited outrage from Palestinian officials who said they are considering filing a complaint against Friedman at the International Criminal Court (ICC).

Talk of changing the status of the West Bank is always controversial, but coming after an election campaign that saw Benjamin Netanyahu committing to apply Israeli sovereignty over parts of the West Bank, it made particular waves.

"Their vision is about annexation of occupied territory, a war crime under worldwide law", he said.

The Palestinian Red Crescent organization said in a statement he had been hit in the face by a rubber-coated bullet while performing his humanitarian duties in northern Gaza on May 3.

Palestinian officials did not attend a Middle East peace conference organized in Warsaw in February.

Global law regards the West Bank, including East Jerusalem, as "occupied territory" and considers all Jewish settlement-building movement there to be illegal.

The trio has been promoting the economic aspects of their plan, saying they want to improve Palestinian quality of life, but downplaying the prospect of finding a political solution and playing down the long-standing formula of a two-state solution with both sides having a capital in Jerusalem.

Nablus Governor Ibrahim Ramdan said that in the early morning hours a large Israeli military force besieged and opened fire at a Palestinian Preventive Security compound "surprisingly, directly and unjustifiably", injuring an officer and smashing several windows.

The Palestinian leadership has already rejected the plan, saying Trump's moves so far show him to be blatantly biased in favor of Israel.
