RAMALLAH (Ma'an) -- Fourteen people were injured with rubber-coated steel bullets, and dozens more suffered tear-gas inhalation in clashes in Silwad northeast of Ramallah, medics said.

Asif Hami, 17, was hit twice in the head and suffered severe bleeding.

Clashes broke out after Israeli forces closed the main entrance of the village and prevented people from reaching their lands. The area faces a threat of confiscation from the nearby Ofer settlement.

Israeli forces fired tear gas at protesters and passing cars.
