Israeli soldiers invaded, Friday, the town of Teqoua, southeast of Bethlehem in the occupied West Bank, and attacked Palestinian protesters, wounding one with a rubber-coated steel bullet, and causing many others to suffer the effects of teargas inhalation, in addition to abducting another Palestinian.

Taiseer Abu Mfarreh, the head administrator of the Local Council in Teqoua, said the soldiers invaded the town from its western entrance, near the local council building, and resorted to the use of force against the protesters.

He added that the soldiers shot a young man with a rubber-coated steel bullet and caused many others to suffer the effects of teargas inhalation.

The soldiers also invaded and searched many homes in the town, and abducted one Palestinian.
