HEBRON (Ma'an) -- A young Palestinian man was injured with live ammunition and dozens of others suffered from excessive tear gas inhalation in clashes with Israeli forces in al-Arrub refugee camp north of Hebron on Thursday evening.

Local sources in the camp told Ma'an that the young man was shot from close range in the upper left thigh, which caused severe damage to his groin.

He received first aid before being transferred to a hospital for treatment.

Witnesses said that dozens of others were injured with rubber coated steel bullets or from excessive tear gas inhalation after Israeli soldiers deployed heavily at the entrance of the camp.

An Israeli spokeswoman said that Palestinians had "blocked the road," and in response Israeli "soldiers arrived in order to clear the path."

She added that Israeli forces used "riot dispersal means" after Palestinians began "hurling rocks and molotov cocktails," and that "live fire was used towards the main instigator."

She added that a complaint had been filed to district coordination office regarding the incident, but did not know by whom.

Al-Arrub refugee camp is located on the Hebron-Jerusalem road, immediately south of the Gush Etzion Israeli settlement block and beside an Israeli checkpoint.

The Israeli checkpoint has made the area the site of frequent protests against the Israeli occupation, and Israeli forces regularly raid the camp and detain local youths.

The internationally recognized Palestinian territories of which the West Bank and East Jerusalem form a part have been occupied by the Israeli military since 1967.

-1- Before 1967 "the Palestinian territories had been occupied by"
Jordan, and before that the British, and before that Turkey, and
-2- Never before were the territories actually "Palestinian", and
-3- If the Palestinian Authority doesn't reach a peace agreement,
-4- Then the territorial sovereignty situation will remain unchanged,
with Only Gaza and the Areas A/B actually Being Palestinian, and
all the rest remaining under Israel's sovereignty !!!!

Re#1 , it does not matter who did the ruling through history. It matters how the indigenous population that lived continuously in that land for years( and belong to that land ) view the authorities. They do not want the Israelis to rule them. Israel was IMPOSED on them by force. They want to be free . They wanted to be free from Jordan , from the British and from the Turks as well. So what is your point?

One thing has nothing to do with the other... At the end of the day, another unarmed civilian was shot and severly wounded by a heavily armed solder. Again, and again.. Ceaseless violence... From the occupier against the occupied... Only a morally bankrupt society would allow it to continue...

@#2"Joe":You ought to learn the definition of the word"indigenous."When Arabs first arrived in Hebron Dist.in 638,Jews had been continuosly for nearly 1,800 years,of which 1,322 were under their own sovereign rule.Families like mine never left and have nearly 3,300 continuous years on this land.Arabs didnt enter history until 853BCE,labeling them"indigenous"is ridiculous-not to mention grossly incorrect vis a vis the UN Definition by Academic Consensus.Jews and Samaritans are,Arabs are not.

The issue is that those who came to the land as passengers "Bedouins" now so-called Falistinians are to return to wherever they came from and let the indigenous Hebrews aka as Israel alone. Peace.

What you call "another unarmed civilian" was "a young man," and he was probably shot, which engaging in typical riot/clash activities: - Holding a large rock in his had, - With his arm back ready to throw, and - Running straight at an Israeli soldier, so -1- He was Not "Innocent", and -2- He was shot in self-defense !!

Hebrews weren't indigenous. Who built the walls that Joshua blew down with that rad jazz solo? As for Kathy-3 (#6) She must be God. She wasn't there but can tell us with authority exactly how an unarmed person came to be shot with a military weapon. According to the IDF he was shot for being the "main instigator" which means he can chant louder than others. That's a "Jewish" reason for shooting someone?

@#7: All groups predating Jewish sovereignity were extinct culturally for more than 1,000 yrs when the 1st Arabs arrived.Ergo,Jews are the indigenous people of the land.Someone using such a name cant figure that out?Amazing.As for"chanting louder,"learn to read,surely with your name you know what a Molotov is.
