Clashes in al-Bireh after Israel imposes curfew

Oct. 6, 2013 12:10 P.M. (Updated: Oct. 7, 2013 12:43 P.M.)
RAMALLAH (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces raided al-Bireh late Saturday, leading to clashes with locals, witnesses said.

Locals told Ma'an that Israel imposed a curfew in the al-Bireh area after an Israeli girl was shot in the adjacent illegal settlement of Psagot.

Young Palestinians threw stones at Israeli forces, who responded with rubber-coated steel bullets and tear gas canisters.

Shadi Muhammad Khalil, 20, was shot in the head with a rubber-coated steel bullet and taken to hospital. Another unidentified man was shot in the back.

Locals told Ma'an that an Israeli settler from Psagot opened fire at al-Bireh's Jabal al-Tawil neighborhood following an attack in which a nine-year-old girl was injured.

Israeli police said they were not ruling out the possibility of other motives for what was variously described as a shooting or a stabbing as the girl played in her garden.
