HEBRON (Ma'an) -- Four Palestinians were injured by rubber-coated steel bullets in clashes with Israeli soldiers in Hebron on Monday, medics said.

Palestinian youths threw stones at a military base at the entrance of Shuhada street in Hebron, and Israeli forces responded by firing rubber-coated steel bullets and tear gas canisters, witnesses told Ma'an.

Several Palestinians suffered from excessive tear gas inhalation and a number were treated at the scene by Red Crescent medics.

Witnesses said an Israeli soldier was struck in the face by a rock.

An Israeli military spokeswoman said that "around 30 Palestinians were hurling rocks" and confirmed that an Israeli soldier was hit by a rock in his face.

The soldier was only lightly injured, and did not need medical treatment, the spokeswoman said.

She was not familiar with any injuries on the Palestinian side.

Ma'an reports that four Palestinians were injured by rubber-coated steel bullets in clashes with Israeli soldiers & some Palestinians experienced excessive tear gas inhalation. The IDF spokeswoman however, says that she is not familiar with any injuries on the Palestinian side. Please could the IDF define what constitutes an injury then, obviously not being struck by rubber coated bullets or asphyxiation by tear gas.
