BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- A number of young Palestinian men were injured by rubber bullets and excessive tear gas inhalation during clashes with Israeli troops near Bethlehem Tuesday.

Youths in the area organized a rally near Azza refugee camp to protest the Israeli army's recent killings of Palestinians, locals said.

Witnesses said clashes broke out between the protesters and Israeli forces. Palestinians threw rocks and empty bottles while Israeli forces fired rubber-coated steel bullets and tear gas canisters at the youths.

A few Palestinians were taken to the hospital for treatment, locals said, without specifying how many.

An Israeli border police spokesman did not answer calls seeking comment.





The clashes came after an Israeli airstrike killed three Palestinian militants in the Gaza Strip, and just hours after Palestinian security sources said a man died when Israeli soldiers fired at him in his car in the West Bank city of Tulkarem.

The Israeli army also killed two Palestinians in the West Bank on Monday.

Israeli soldiers shot and killed 18-year-old Saji Darwish near Ramallah late Monday, after he allegedly threw stones at Israeli vehicles.

Earlier, Israeli forces shot and killed a Palestinian-Jordanian judge at the Allenby Bridge crossing with Jordan.

The report omitted the paintbombs that are plainly visible on the Observation Tower in the Security Barrier. Beyond that, yet again Palestinians prove just why we need a Security Barrier. Slinging stones at 120 kph, glass bottles and paintbombs isnt "nonviolent protest," it is terrorism since it focuses on Israeli civilians and is strategised to do so. The PA's financial support of these attacks belies its true nature.
