JERUSALEM (Ma'an) -- Dozens of Palestinians were injured late Sunday during clashes with Israeli forces in East Jerusalem and Abu Dis, local spokespeople said.

Some 14 Palestinians were injured by live bullets during clashes with Israeli forces in Abu Dis east of Jerusalem, a local popular committee spokesman said.

Hani Halabiya told Ma'an that some Palestinians had been hit by live bullets in the legs, while others had been it in their arms and stomachs.

Israeli forces shot a paramedic, Daoud Affana, with live fire in the foot, Halabiya said.

Two other volunteers for the Red Crescent were injured, he added.

In Shufat refugee camp in East Jerusalem, seven youths were injured by rubber-coated bullets and dozens suffered from excessive tear gas inhalation, said Thair al-Fasfus, a local Fatah spokesperson.

An elderly man was taken to hospital by Red Crescent medics after inhaling tear gas, the spokesman said.

During the clashes, youths threw a Molotov cocktail at the military checkpoint of Shufat refugee camp, briefly setting fire to watchtower.

An Israeli police spokesman did not answer calls seeking more details.
