Palestinians medical sources have reported, Sunday, that six residents were injured by Israeli army fire after the soldiers invaded al-Baloa’ area in the al-Biereh city, leading to clashes with scores of local youths.The sources said two Palestinians were shot with live rounds by army sharpshooters, and four others were shot with rubber-coated steel bullets, and many suffered the effects of tear gas inhalation.

The clashes erupted after several military vehicles invaded al-Baloa’, after dozens of residents held a protest close to the Beit El illegal colony.

The army also attacked many Palestinian journalists, and tried to forcibly remove them from the area.

Beit El is the location of a major military base and the head office of the so-called Civil Administration, run by the Israeli military occupation.
