On Friday evening, Israeli soldiers shot a young man and a child in Beit Ummar town, north of Hebron, in the southern part of the occupied West Bank.

Media activist Mohamad Awad said several army jeeps invaded the town and attacked Palestinian protesters with live rounds, gas bombs, and concussion grenades.

Awad added that the soldiers shot a young man with a rubber-coated steel bullet in the leg, and a child in the thigh before Palestinian medics rushed them to medical centers for treatment.

Palestinian medics also provided the needed treatment to many Palestinians who suffered the effects of tear gas inhalation.

In related news, Israeli soldiers assaulted and injured a Palestinian child on his family’s land, north of Beit Ummar, before the medics moved him to a clinic in the town.
