HEBRON (Ma'an) -- Four more Palestinians were critically wounded by Israeli fire at West Bank protests on Monday afternoon, hours after two Palestinians died from wounds as widespread rallies were held in support of Gaza.

Wasim Nidal Al-Saed, 21, from Hebron was shot with live bullets in his back and foot during clashes near Bab Al-Zawiye in central Hebron.

Government hospital spokesman Basel al-Natsheh told Ma'an that doctors in the hospital carried out an operation to save Al-Saed’s life.

In Halhul, near Hebron, a Palestinian policeman was hit in the head with a tear gas canister fired by Israeli forces.

Ahmad Khalid Issa Ismael, 21, was hit with a bullet in the head and transferred for an emergency operation after clashes in Bethlehem.

Omar Jameel Hassan Al-Froukh, 22, was also hit by live fire during a protest in Sair, east of Hebron. Bullets penetrated his pelvis and he fell into a coma, medics said.

Earlier, 35 people were injured after Israeli forces fired rubber bullets and tear gas at a demonstration by Atara checkpoint. Four were seriously wounded.

Protesters had marched from Bir Zeit University to the Ramallah checkpoint in solidarity with the people of Gaza, with some throwing rocks and empty bottles at military forces.

In Qalqiliya, 10 protesters, including a Red Crescent volunteer, were injured in clashes with Israeli forces at a checkpoint in the south of the city.

Six of the injuries were reported as critical and four people were arrested.

As Israel bombs the Gaza Strip for the sixth day, solidarity protests have seen an uptick in violence.

A 22-year-old was shot dead in Hebron and a 28-year-old died of wounds from a Saturday protest in Nabi Saleh. Another two people were seriously wounded by Israeli forces in Bethlehem towns Tuqu and Deir al-Salah Monday morning.
