Palestinian sustain Israeli gunshot wounds north of Hebron

HEBRON, A Palestinian Tuesday evening sustained gunshot wounds from Israeli military gunfire in Beit Ummar town, north of Hebron, according to a local activist.

Mohammad Awad, a local media activist, said that Israeli forces intercepted a funeral procession in the southern West Bank town, preventing the mourners and pallbearers from reaching the cemetery at the town entrance and triggering confrontations.

The soldiers, who occupied the rooftops of several houses near the town entrance, which was closed, opened fire towards the mourners and pallbearers hitting a mourner by a live round in the thigh and causing dozens others to suffocate from tear gas.
