HEBRON (Ma’an) – Two young Palestinian men suffered minor wounds Sunday afternoon after they were hit by rubber-coated bullets in the feet during clashes with Israeli troops in the town of Beit Ummar north of Hebron, a local spokesman said.

Muhammad Ayyad Awad of the Beit Ummar popular committee against Israel’s separation wall and settlements told Ma’an that clashes with Israeli forces broke out in Asida neighborhood after school pupils rallied in the area protesting the ongoing Israeli aggression against the Gaza Strip.

Israeli soldiers, he said, fired rubber-coated bullets and tear-gas canisters haphazardly at the protestors and at houses in the town. As a result, many residents and bystanders were hurt as a result of inhaling tear gas.

Separately, Israeli soldiers smashed the rear windshield of a Palestinian private car at the northern entrance to Beit Ummar after they stopped the car and questioned the driver Muhammad Ahmad Younis al-Alami, 25.
