Palestinian shot and injured by Israeli forces with live fire in central Gaza Strip

GAZA (Ma’an) -- A Palestinian “youth” was injured Monday evening during clashes in the central Gaza Strip, along the border with Israel, when Israeli forces shot the Palestinian in the leg with live ammunition.

Medical sources in Gaza told Ma’an that the Palestinian, who sources said was in his twenties, was injured in his right leg, and was in moderate condition at the Shuhada al-Aqsa hospital in Deir al-Balah in the central Gaza Strip.

The Palestinian, whose identity remained unknown, was injured during clashes east of the Bureij refugee camp, that had erupted after Palestinians took to the border to protest in solidarity with some 1,300 Palestinian prisoners, who entered their 36th day of hunger strike on Monday.

An Israeli army spokesperson said they were looking into reports.

At least 20 Palestinians were shot and injured, one seriously, during clashes with Israeli forces earlier Monday in the occupied West Bank districts of Ramallah and Hebron.

The clashes came as Palestinians observed a general strike across the Palestinian territory in support of the mass hunger strike, and also to express opposition to US President Donald Trump who arrived in Israel on Monday for a two-day visit that will include a meeting with Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas in Bethlehem in the southern occupied West Bank on Tuesday.
