BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces reportedly fired at three Palestinians with rubber-coated steel bullets, hitting one, on Saturday as they approached a fence surrounding the illegal Israeli settlement of Beit El in the central occupied West Bank district of Ramallah, according to Hebrew-language news sites, however a spokesperson from the Palestinian Red Crescent told Ma'an they were not aware of the incident.

According to Israeli news site Ynet, three Palestinians "approached and touched the fence surrounding the settlement" and Israeli soldiers stationed there opened fire, hitting one in the leg.

An Israeli army spokesperson told Ma'an they were looking into reports and could not confirm the incident.
