HEBRON, Israeli army on Saturday shot and injured two Palestinians during clashes with angry Palestinian protesters in the southern West Bank town of Beit Ummar, according to local sources.
Mohammad Awad, a local media activist, told WAFA that clashes erupted between Palestinians and Israeli forces following the funeral of slain Rami Sabarneh, whose corpse was handed over to the Palestinian side yesterday after being withheld by Israel for one month.
He said the Israeli soldiers fired live bullets and teargas canisters to disperse the protesters, injuring two of them and causing others to suffocate from teargas inhalation.
The injured were moved to a nearby hospital for medical treatment.
