Qalqilia - Ma'an - Ten Palestinian citizens were injured on Monday evening at the entrance to the northern West Bank village of Azzun Atma, south of Qalqilia.

The head of the local council, Azmi Salamah, was one of the injured.

Eyewitnesses told Ma'an's reporter that school students went on a trip outside the village and when they returned to the village in the evening Israeli troops refused to let them in. Families then rushed to the checkpoint at the entrance to the village to plead with the soldiers.

The Israeli troops refused the students in, provoking clashes between the residents and Israeli troops who fired at the families and the students injuring ten people. Two were evacuated to Israeli hospitals and others were sent to local hospitals.

The village is located on the Western side of the separation wall.
