BETHLEHEM (Ma’an) -- A Palestinian woman was hit by a plastic-coated bullet in her back during clashes between young Palestinian men and Israeli forces in the Um Rukbeh area in al-Khader south of Bethlehem Sunday.

Medics identified the victim as Amneh Ali Khader Salah from al-Khader. She was shot in the courtyard of her house.

Amneh's brother has been serving a life sentence in Israeli prison since 1993.

An Israeli army spokeswoman said she was checking into the reports.

Several Palestinians were also injured on Saturday in clashes in al-Khader.

Popular committee coordinator Ahmad Salah said that a number of youngsters were injured with rubber bullets, and one of them was taken to the hospital.

He added that Israeli forces fired a tear gas canister into a house, causing injuries to an 80-year-old woman and her young granddaughter. They were both taken to the hospital.
