Palestinian critically injured in clashes near Ramallah

June 16, 2014 8:42 P.M. (Updated: June 18, 2014 10:53 P.M.)
RAMALLAH (Ma'an) -- Six Palestinians were injured including one critically in clashes with Israeli forces near Qalandiya checkpoint near Ramallah.

Israeli forces fired live and rubber-coated steel bullets at protesters who threw rocks at Israeli forces deployed near the checkpoint, injuring six of them.

Yazan Yacoub, 17, was shot in the chest and abdomen with a live bullet. He underwent an operation and is currently in the ICD, medical sources said.

Hundreds of Palestinians marched toward the checkpoint to protest the killing of young Palestinian from al-Jalazun refugee camp.

The injured were taken to hospitals for treatment.

An Israeli army spokeswoman did not immediately return calls.
