HEBRON (Ma'an) -- Five Palestinians were injured after Israeli forces opened fire with live and rubber-coated steel bullets during clashes in Beit Ummar north of Hebron.

Spokesman for the Popular Resistance Committee against the Wall Mohammad Ayyad Awad in Beit Ummar said that Bashir Irzeeq Bashir Abu Ayyash, 16, was shot in the left thigh with a live bullet and was taken to Aliya hospital in moderate condition.

Two others others were injured by bullet fragments, including an unidentified 16-year-old who was injured in the stomach and an unidentified 17-year-old who was hit in the left thigh.

Two others were hit by rubber-coated steel bullets in their feet and were treated on the scene in the Aseeda area. Dozens of others suffered from excessive tear gas inhalation during the clashes.

Israeli forces climbed the rooftops of several houses and closed the main road of the village, the spokesman added.

An Israeli military spokeswoman did not immediately return calls seeking comment.

Beit Ummar has seen frequent clashes in recent weeks as Israeli forces have blocked the main road into the village, leading locals to respond in anger.
