RAMALLAH (Ma'an) -- A Palestinian photographer was injured and dozens of others suffered excessive tear-gas inhalation in clashes in Nabi Saleh village near Ramallah on Friday.
Witnesses said that Anadhol news agency photographer Muath Meshaal was shot with a rubber-coated steel bullet in the foot from close range, and was taken to Palestine medical complex for treatment.
Israeli forces had dispersed a weekly protest in the village as it neared the entrance.
An army spokesman said 60 Palestinians hurled rocks and security forces in the area, and the forces responded with riot-dispersal means.
He said that in nearby Nilin village, Palestinians hurled rocks and injured a border police officer and a soldier.
