JERUSALEM (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces shot and injured two Palestinians at a demonstration near Jerusalem in the occupied West Bank late Friday, activists said.

The protesters were demonstrating in the al-Ezeriya and Abu Dis villages against the death of Nour Mohammad Afaneh, who died in an ambulance while it was held up near a checkpoint.

Popular Committee spokesman Hani Halbiya said that clashes broke out in the Ras Kabs area and in Abu Dis village. Habliya said that snipers fired live bullets at protesters, injuring one in the chest and leg, and a second with three bullets in the lower extremities.

They were taken to nearby hospitals in critical condition, he added.

Palestinians responded by throwing rocks and closing roads with burned tires.

Israel's army referred inquiries to the border police.

A police spokesman did not immediately return calls.
