BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- Seven Palestinians were shot on Sunday by live and rubber-coated steel steel bullets when clashes broke out with Israeli forces in the village of Tuqu south of Bethlehem, locals said.

The village's municipality told Ma'an that a 17-year-old and a 20-year were shot with live fire in the thigh and foot respectively, while five others were injured with rubber-coated steel bullets in clashes that broke out near the western entrance of the village.

The two injured with live fire were taken to Beit Jala Hospital in moderate condition, the municipality added.

An Israeli army spokesperson did not have immediate information but told Ma'an they were looking into the incident.

Earlier on Sunday a resident Tuqu, Issa Froukh, told Ma’an that said Israeli excavators had been leveling private Palestinian land in the village since Wednesday, reportedly to make way for an Israeli military tower.
