Clashes erupted in the Bab al-Zawiya area in central Hebron on Thursday following the earlier killing of 19-year-old Farouk Abdel Sidr on nearby Shuhada Street, locals said.
Locals said several Palestinians were injured during the clashes, which are ongoing, including three protesters who were shot and injured with rubber-coated steel bullets and dozens of others who suffered from severe tear gas inhalation.
In addition, the car windows of local journalist Hazem Badr were shattered when three rubber-coated steel bullets hit the vehicle during clashes.
Meanwhile, Israeli settlers attacked homes of Palestinians living off Shuhada Street and the Tel Rumeida area, locals said. Hours before the clashes broke out, Israeli soldiers shot dead 19-year-old Sidr near the illegal Beit Hadassah settlement off Shuhada Street in central Hebron, following the second alleged stabbing attack in the city on Thursday. more
