HEBRON (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces shot and injured a young Palestinian man with a live round during clashes in the southern West Bank town of Beit Ummar on Tuesday morning, locals said.

Locals told Ma'an that Ayman Ahmad Hmeidat had been shot in his shoulder and evacuated by the Palestinian Red Crescent service to a hospital in Hebron.

They said that local youths had been throwing stones at Israeli forces near Safa junction, and the soldiers responded with live and rubber-coated steel bullets, tear gas canisters, and stun grenades.

Even before unrest swept the occupied Palestinian territory at the beginning of last month, Beit Ummar was the site of regular clashes between Palestinians and Israeli forces.

Israeli forces have detained dozens of the town's residents since the beginning of the year, in night raids that have often turned violent.

You never reported how your brave soldiers stabbed an 80 year old crusader woman in Rishon letzion. This is big news for you.

If these young men were to throw stones at their family members,
they would probably be severely beaten, which may do more damage than being shot with rubber-bullets, or live-bullets in their legs.

Your rocks that you throw don't have the effects you are seeking the Jews are protected by plastic face shields and lite body armor. The Jews should be able to do with the land you lost by war anything they want this includes using live bullets no more rubber ones.

Interesting, Luzer. A mix of nastiness and ignorance. So, if soldiers are "protected by plastic face shields and lite body armor" and rocks "don't have the effect you are seeking", soldiers are not in any danger. And if they're not in any danger, they're not killing in self-defense, they're killing defenseless people who pose no threat to terrorise civilians.

(contd.) And you can't lose (or gain) land in war. Or replace rubber bullets with live ones on a sadistic whim because "Jews should be able to do...anything they want" unless you are a lawless rogue state which has clearly lost it.
