Israeli police said Monday that they had arrested an Israeli policeman suspected of shooting a Palestinian youth on Saturday, leaving him with moderate injuries.

"An employee with the public security sector was recently arrested in the southern West Bank settlement of Beit Hagai on suspicion of involvement in the shooting of a Palestinian youth," Israeli police spokesperson Luba Samri said in a statement.

Samri did not say when the Israeli policeman had been arrested.

The arrest is related to an incident in which "a Palestinian youth sustained minor to moderate wounds after being shot on Saturday while working on agricultural land near the settlement."

Samri added that the policeman would be "brought before a court in Jerusalem on Monday to extend his detention pending ongoing investigations."
