BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces on Tuesday shot and injured two Palestinian youth during clashes in Bethlehem city that erupted after the funeral of a teenager who was shot and killed earlier that day, local sources told Ma'an.

Sources said one youth was shot and injured with live fire in the lower leg, while another was shot in the thigh during clashes that followed the funeral of 19-year-old Malik Akram Shahin, who was shot dead during a pre-dawn detention raid in Duheisha refugee camp

Both young men were evacuated to a nearby hospital.

In addition, a medic on the scene was hit in the head with a tear gas canister while working at the clashes, and several other protesters were shot and injured with rubber-coated steel bullets.

Dozens of protesters reportedly suffered from severe tear gas inhalation.

Clashes also erupted in Tuqu and al-Khader villages on the outskirts of Bethlehem city.
