Two Palestinian paramedics, on Sunday evening, suffered injuries after soldiers targeted them, as they performed their duties during skirmishes between local youth and Israeli occupation forces in Eizariya town, occupied Jerusalem.
The Red Crescent said, according to Days of Palestine, that two of its paramedics were rushed to the Makassed emergency unit, to receive medical assistance, adding that one of them was hit by a tear gas canister, in his face, and that the other received a foot injury from a rubber-coated steel bullet.
According to local sources, Israeli soldiers violently stormed Eizariya town, and began firing tear gas grenades and rubber-coated bullets at Palestinians citizens, which provoked confrontations with young local men.
