Israeli forces opened fire, on Wednesday, towards Palestinian young men who protested the incursion of illegal Israeli settlers into the Ein al-Sultan refugee camp, in Jericho city, in the Jordan Valley, wounding two with live ammunition.

The sources told the Palestinian News & Information Agency (WAFA) that Israeli soldiers escorted illegal colonizers to a local synagogue, which led to demonstrations by Palestinian residents.

Sources added that the army fired live rounds, concussion grenades, and tear gas at the youths who burned tires to express their objection to the settler invasion.

Two Palestinians were shot with live rounds, suffering moderate injuries. Both young men were transferred to a nearby hospital for medical intervention.

In addition, several young men were treated at the scene for tear gas inhalation.
