BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces fired a rubber-coated bullet at protesters Friday in the occupied West Bank, injuring a 15 year old boy, activists in the Nabi Saleh village said.
Soldiers fired so-called skunk water, rubber bullets, and high-velocity tear gas canisters at demonstrators protesting the loss of access to their land due to a nearby settlement.
Activists identified the 15-year-old as Waed Tamimi. They said in a statement he was shot in his side by a rubber-coated bullet after soldiers invaded the village.
The boy was treated by Red Crescent medics on the scene, they said.
