Palestinian killed during clashes with Israeli forces in Hebron


A Palestinian man was shot and killed during clashes in the Ras al-Jura area of Hebron on Friday, witnesses told Ma'an.

A Ma'an reporter said Uday Irsheid, 24, was shot in the chest and critically wounded during clashes with Israeli military forces at the northern entrance to Hebron.

He later died from his injuries.

The clashes broke out following a march called for by Hamas to mark the 28th anniversary of the political party's founding. Red Crescent officials told Ma'an that nine Palestinians were shot with live fire and three with rubber-coated steel bullets during the clashes. The injured were taken to a Health Work Committee center for medical treatment.

An Israeli spokesperson told Ma'an that "a violent riot in Hebron is taking place with hundreds of Palestinians attacking forces, hurling rocks and rolling burning tires."

Israeli forces used riot dispersal means before firing 0.22 rounds at main instigators, the spokesperson added. more
