Israeli soldiers injured, Saturday, a Palestinian child and caused many residents to suffer the effects of tear gas inhalation in the al-‘Arroub refugee camp, north of the southern West Bank city of Hebron.

Local sources said several army jeeps invaded the refugee camp, leading to protests before the soldiers fired a few live rounds, rubber-coated steel bullets, and gas bombs.

They added that one child, 14 years of age, was injured by shrapnel of live fire in the chest, before he was rushed to Beit Jala governmental hospital, suffering moderate-but-stable wounds.

Many Palestinians suffered the effects of tear gas inhalation and received the needed treatment by local medics.
