Israeli soldiers shot, on Tuesday evening, two young Palestinian men, and caused many others to suffer the effects of teargas inhalation, after the army invaded the al-Mazra’a al-Gharbiyya village, north of the central West Bank city of Ramallah.

Media sources said dozens of Palestinian youngsters protested the invasion, and hurled stones at the armored military vehicles.

They added that dozens of soldiers invaded the village from several directions, after surrounding and isolating it.
