Dozens of Palestinians injured in West Bank clashes

BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- Dozens of Palestinians were injured on Friday during clashes across the occupied West Bank, medics said, as Palestinian political factions called for a "Day of Rage."

At the northern entrance to Hebron, a rally organized by Hamas after Friday prayers was suppressed by Israeli forces, who fired tear gas canisters and stun grenades at demonstrators.

Palestinian youths threw rocks at Israeli soldiers and rolled burning tires at the forces, witnesses said.

Three Palestinians were shot with live fire and two with rubber-coated bullets, while 15 were injured by tear gas.

In Qalqiliya, at least 13 were injured by tear gas, with two injuries also reported in Ramallah, the Red Crescent said.

Witnesses said that a 13-year-old boy was shot in the foot with a rubber-coated steel bullet in Aida refugee camp in Bethlehem.
