Man injured by live fire in Bethlehem clashes

Aug. 15, 2014 12:19 P.M. (Updated: Aug. 16, 2014 1:39 P.M.)
BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- A Palestinian man was shot and injured late Thursday when Israeli special forces raided Aida refugee camp in Bethlehem.

Locals told Ma'an that Israeli soldiers shot a 24-year-old man from the Abu Srur family in the foot before detaining him.

Clashes broke out in Aide refugee camp and along Hebron road as Israeli soldiers fired rubber-coated steel bullets, live ammunition and tear gas canisters.

Israeli soldiers deployed heavily by a military watchtower near Rachel's Tomb during the clashes.

Witnesses said an Israeli ambulance was seen in the area.

Clashes also broke out in the al-Tur area of East Jerusalem late Thursday, with Mahmoud Khalil Abu al-Hawa reported injured after being shot in the stomach with a rubber-coated steel bullet.

Settlers from an outpost in the area fired shots into the air during the clashes.
