Two Palestinian minors were shot and injured by Israeli forces, on Sunday, with rubber-coated steel bullets in the town of Beit Ummar, north of Hebron.

Local activist, Mohammed Awad, told WAFA that Israeli forces stormed the southern occupied West Bank lands close to the illegal Israeli settlement of Kermi Tsur, built on Palestinian lands south of Beit Ummar, which residents protested.

One of the minors was shot in the upper chest with a rubber-coated steel bullets, and was transferred to hospital in moderate condition, while another youth, 16, was treated on site, having been shot in the foot.

Also in Hebron, Israeli occupation forces abducted one Palestinian, on Sunday, and detained Tha’er Sharif, a Palestinian journalist, while assaulting other journalists, on Saturday.
