HEBRON (Ma'an) -- Three Palestinians were injured by Israeli forces on Thursday during a protest near Hebron following the killing of Muatazz Washaha, 24, in the central West Bank earlier in the day.
Local youths in al-Fawwar refugee camp threw stones and empty bottles at Israeli soldiers, who responded by firing rubber-coated steel bullets and tear gas.
Israeli forces closed the main entrance to the camp and prevented cars from passing along the road as a result.
Washaha, 24, was killed during an arrest raid in Birzeit early Thursday.
