BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- A photographer from Bethlehem is in a stable condition after being shot in the face by Israeli forces with a rubber-coated steel bullet on Monday, medics said.

Muhammad al-Azza, 23, was shot in Aida refugee camp while covering clashes between youths and Israeli forces. He was taken to the Arab Society Hospital in Beit Jala and underwent surgery on his face.

Medics said al-Azza, who works at the Lajee Center in Aida camp, is in a stable condition.
