12 Palestinians injured by Israeli forces in Ofer clashes

BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- Twelve Palestinians were injured on Friday in clashes with Israeli forces outside Ofer jail near Ramallah, an Israeli army spokeswoman said.

"Some 150 protesters set fire to car tires and threw stones at Israeli security forces, who responded using riot dispersal means," an Israeli army spokeswoman said.

Twelve hits were identified on Palestinian demonstrators, with 11 people hit by rubber-coated steel bullets and one with a tear-gas grenade.

Two Israeli journalists working for the Walla website were reportedly attacked by Palestinians during the protest, before being escorted from the area by PA security forces, she added.

A day earlier, Israeli forces shot and killed two Palestinian youths during a Nakba Day rally near the Israeli jail.

Nadim Siyam Nuwara, 15, and Muhammad Audah Abu al-Thahir, 17, were shot directly in the chest during the protest.
