Palestinian medical sources have reported, Saturday, that six Palestinians were shot with rubber-coated steel bullets, and one was directly shot with a gas bomb, during clashes with Israeli soldiers invading the northern entrance area of the West Bank city of Bethlehem. The Red Crescent in Bethlehem said its medics provided the needed medical treatment to the seven Palestinians, in addition to eighteen others who suffered the effects of tear gas inhalation.

It added that one of the wounded, a young man, suffered a fracture in his arm after being directly shot with a gas bomb, and was moved to the Beit Jala Governmental hospital for treatment.
