Bethlehem - Ma'an - A young Palestinian was killed and another injured during clashes that erupted in the village of Tuqu south east of the West Bank city of Bethlehem.

Palestinian medical sources affirmed that 16-year-old Hasan Mohammad Hmid was killed by a bullet wound in his chest. The bullet was fired by an Israeli soldier in the middle of the village. Twenty-year-old Abd Khalid Hmid was injured when hit in the leg by a bullet.
