CLASHES BETWEEN ISRAELI SECURITY FORCES AND PALESTINIAN PROTESTERS NEAR THE WEST BANK VILLAGE OF BITDUKU

HEBRON, September 23, 2014 – (WAFA) – Three Palestinians were shot and injured Tuesday and dozens others suffocated during clashes with Israeli forces in Hebron, said security sources.

Clashes erupted in the Hebron University neighborhood and Tareq Bin Ziad junction, where Israeli troops fired rubber-coated steel bullets and tear gas canisters at locals and students, injuring three and causing dozens others to suffer excessive tear gas inhalation.

Two Palestinians were reportedly directly injured in the head and the knee. They were evacuated to a Hebron hospital. Suffocation cases were treated at the scene.

Clashes erupted following the killing of Marwan al-Qawasme and ‘Amer Abu Aisha, two Palestinians Israel had suspected of the fatal abduction of three Israeli teenagers on June 12.
