On Friday, Israeli soldiers injured many Palestinians, including a journalist shot with live fire, in Beit Ummar town, north of Hebron, in the southern part of the occupied West Bank.

Local media activist, Mohammad Ayyad Awad, said many army jeeps invaded the town, especially the Aseeda area, leading to protests before the soldiers fired live rounds, rubber-coated steel bullets, gas bombs, and concussion grenades.

Awad stated that the soldiers shot two Palestinians with live fire in their thighs, including a journalist Ehab Al-Allami, before Palestinian medics rushed them to a hospital in Hebron.

Palestinian medics also treated two young men who were shot with rubber-coated steel bullets and dozens who suffered the effects of tear gas inhalation.
