BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- A Palestinian protester and an Israeli soldier were injured Wednesday in clashes near Bethlehem's Aida refugee camp, medics and the Israeli army said.

A young Palestinian was hospitalized after he was hit in the shoulder by a high-velocity tear gas canister, Red Crescent official Abdul-Halim Jaafra told Ma'an.

Another Palestinian suffered severe breathing problems after inhaling tear gas, he added.

An Israeli military spokesman told Ma'an that around 50 Palestinians hurled 18 firebombs and nine pipe bombs at Israel's wall close the camp, causing damage to the wall.

Israeli forces arrived and were pelted with rocks, lightly injuring one soldier, the army spokesman said, adding that forces responded with riot dispersal means.

In separate clashes in the village of Tuqu, southeast of Bethlehem, Israeli forces fired rubber bullets and tear gas canisters at Palestinians who were throwing stones at settler cars.

An Israeli civilian was injured by a stone, locals and the Israeli army said.
