HEBRON (Ma'an) -- A Palestinian teenager was hit by live fire from Israeli forces during clashes in Hebron, witnesses said, a day after a 17-year-old was shot dead by troops in the city.

Nasser Mohammad Wasfi Al-Sharabati, 17, was hit in the chest by a bullet in the Bab al-Zawiye area, a Ma'an reporter said.

Medics said he was in a serious condition.

An Israeli army spokesman said he would look into the incident.

Confrontations broke out overnight between Hebron residents and Israeli soldiers, who deployed to the area in large numbers after 17-year-old Muhammad Ziad Awad Salaymah was shot dead by an Israeli border guard in Hebron's Old City.

Emergency services spokesman Nasser Kabbajh said during Thursday's clashes 26 Palestinians were taken to Hebron governmental hospital and 12 to a medical clinic. Another 51 people were treated at the scene, he said.

Some 21 Palestinians were wounded by rubber bullets during the clashes, he said.
