RAMALLAH (Ma'an) -- At least 18 Palestinians were injured with rubber-coated steel bullets during clashes in the Ramallah-area on Wednesday, the Red Crescent said.

A spokesperson said 18 Palestinians were hit by rubber bullets during clashes near the illegal Beit El settlement and el-Bireh, with three hit by shrapnel from live fire.

Initial reports said one Palestinian had been killed in the clashes.

An Israeli army spokesperson said that a "violent riot" broke out near the checkpoint of the Israeli settlement of Beit El, near Ramallah.

Around 350 Palestinians were present at the riot and were throwing Molotov cocktails and rocks at Israeli forces.

The forces “heard gunshots fired at them” and “responded at the instigators with live fire.”

The army spokesperson confirmed one hit, and said the injured Palestinian had been evacuated to the Shaare Zedek Medical Center.

The spokesperson added that another “instigator was detained for questioning.”

Over 129 Palestinians were injured in clashes with Israeli soldiers and settlers on Tuesday across the occupied West Bank and East Jerusalem, the Red Crescent and Palestinian Authority Ministry of Health said.

The reported injuries on Tuesday will bring the total injured since Saturday to over 600. Of those, Israeli forces have shot 49 with live rounds.
