BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- A Palestinian youth was shot and injured by an Israeli settler in a village near Bethlehem late Thursday, a local activist told Ma'an.

Local popular committee spokesman Ahmad Salah told Ma'an that a group of settlers raided the Umm Rukba area of al-Khader and shot Marwan Izzat Abu Sway in the stomach.

The settlers were accompanied by Israeli soldiers, Salah said.

Sway was taken to Beit Jala governmental hospital with moderate injuries, he added.

After the shooting, clashes broke out between Palestinians and Israeli forces. Dozens suffered from excessive tear gas inhalation.
