Palestinian TV has reported, on Friday evening, January 31, 2013, that at least fourteen Palestinians were injured, one seriously, during clashes with Israeli soldiers invading the al-Jalazoun refugee camp, north of the central West Bank city of Ramallah.Eyewitnesses said soldiers, stationed at the entrance of the camp, fired rounds of live ammunition, gas bombs, and rubber-coated metal bullets at dozens of residents who marched following evening prayers, to protest the death of Mohammad Mubarak who was killed by the army three days ago.
Fourteen Palestinians were shot and wounded by army fire, and were moved to local hospitals and medical centers, one of the wounded suffering a serious injury.
The Palestinians were protesting the death of Mohammad Mubarak, 20, who was shot, and killed, by Israeli soldiers, on Wednesday, while conducting road repairs as part of a project conducted by the Ministry of Labor.
The project is financially supported by the USAID (U.S. Agency for International Development).
Eyewitnesses and coworkers said that Mohammad was a flagger, organizing traffic and was wearing clearly marked work uniform when the soldiers shot him dead.
The army claimed the victim carried a weapon, but numerous eyewitness testimonies confirmed that he was working, did not carry any weapon, and never posed any threat against the soldiers.
