Israeli forces shoot, seriously injure Palestinian teen near Ramallah

Dec. 10, 2014 4:49 P.M. (Updated: Dec. 11, 2014 9:17 P.M.)
RAMALLAH (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces on Wednesday shot and injured a Palestinian teenager in the head during clashes at the entrance of al-Jalazun refugee camp near Ramallah, medics said.

Raouf Hussein Snubar, 14, was hit in the head with a live bullet, causing fractures to his skull, medical sources told Ma'an.

They said he was in serious but stable condition.

Several other Palestinians were injured with live fire and rubber-coated bullets, and others suffered from tear gas inhalation.

Clashes erupted following a march that was organized in the camp in protest of the death of Palestinian Authority official Ziad Abu Ein.

Abu Ein died after being assaulted by Israeli soldiers during a demonstration in the village of Turmsayya in the Ramallah district.

An Israeli army spokesman told Ma'an that a "riot of 50 Palestinians erupted in the area" and Israeli forces fired rubber-coated steel bullets at a "main instigator."

No live fire was used during the incident, he added.
