HEBRON, October 14, 2015 (WAFA) – A Palestinian boy Wednesday afternoon was shot and injured with a rubber-coated steel bullet and dozens others suffocated during clashes that erupted with Israeli forces in Surif town, northeast of Hebron, said medical sources.


The Palestinian Red Crescent medics told WAFA a 13-year-old Palestinian boy was shot near his eye with a rubber-coated steel bullet. He was admitted into a Hebron hospital for treatment.


Israeli forces also fired tear gas canisters at locals, causing several to suffer excessive tear gas inhalation. They also detained a Palestinian after brutally assaulting him. The detainee was identified as Omar al-Hih.


Forces also broke into several houses in the town, occupying and turning their rooftops into military watchtowers, and deployed across nearby farmlands.
