Witnesses: Student injured by rubber bullet near Bethlehem

Oct. 9, 2013 2:38 P.M. (Updated: Oct. 10, 2013 10:36 P.M.)
BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces shot a student in the foot with a rubber-coated steel bullet near Bethlehem on Wednesday, locals said.

Ahmad Salah, coordinator of the committee against the wall and settlements, told Ma'an that Israeli forces fired tear gas canisters and rubber bullets at a school in the village of al-Khader.

One student was shot in the foot by a rubber bullet and dozens suffered tear gas inhalation.

Incidents of this kind occur on a daily basis and prevent students from attending school, Salah said.

An Israeli army spokeswoman said she was looking into the incident.
