Four Palestinians injured by Israeli gunfire in Beit Ummar


Four Palestinians were injured today during confrontations with the Israeli occupation forces in the town of Beit Ummar, to the north of Hebron, according to the Ministry of Health.

Witnesses told WAFA that Israeli occupation soldiers fired live shots and rubber-coated steel rounds at protesters during confrontations in the town, injuring three by live bullets and a fourth by rubber-coated rounds. One of the injured was reported in moderate condition, while the other three are in a stable condition.

Mohammad Awad, a local Palestinian activist, said the Israeli soldiers also fired teargas canisters and stun grenades at homes in the town, causing several cases of suffocation from gas inhalation.
