Israeli forces clash with demonstrators in Bethlehem

BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- Four Palestinians were injured on Monday during clashes at the northern entrance to Bethlehem, medics said.

Muhammad Awad, director of the ambulance and emergency department in Bethlehem, told Ma'an that one youth suffered a deep wound to his head after he was hit by a rubber-coated steel bullet, while another man was shot with a live round in his leg.

Two others suffered light injures as Israeli forces fired tear gas canisters, rubber-coated steel bullets, and live rounds at demonstrators.

Clashes broke out following a march in the area after a 12-year-old boy, Abed al-Rahman Shadi Obeidallah, was killed by Israeli forces during clashes in the nearby Aida refugee camp.

Palestinian youths set fire to an Israeli military watchtower in the camp where they believed the soldier responsible for the killing was positioned.

Shops in central Bethlehem closed their doors in mourning for the 13-year-old child.

The Palestinian Red Crescent told Ma'an late on Sunday that 96 Palestinians had been shot with either live or rubber rounds by Israeli soldiers and settlers since the previous evening.
