JERUSALEM (Ma'an) -- Three Palestinian students were injured by rubber-coated bullets on Wednesday amid clashes between protesters and Israeli police in the Old City of Jerusalem, the principal of their school said.

Munthir al-Natsheh of the Islamic Orphanage Secondary School told Ma'an that two of the students were inside their classrooms and another was in the school yard getting a drink of water when they were hit.

Muhammad al-Natsheh was hit in the shoulder, Muhammad Abu Leil in the stomach, and Rida Hirbawi in the head, the principal said.

The three were taken to a hospital for treatment.

Al-Natsheh condemned what he called the Israeli police's "constant targeting" of the school, and he pointed out that police had even threatened to close the school because of alleged rock-throwing by the students.

Earlier, clashes took place between Palestinian worshipers and Israeli police in the Al-Aqsa compound in the Old City of Jerusalem, leaving 15 Palestinians and four Israeli officers lightly injured.
