Two injured by live bullets in Israeli crackdown at participants in marches
Two Palestinians were on Monday shot and injured by live bullets fired by Israeli soldiers at Palestinian students participating in marches commemorating the 15th anniversary for the death of Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat, according to medical sources.
The Red Crescent said its crews transferred a youth from Fuwwar refugee camp, in the south of the West Bank, to hospital in Hebron after he was shot in the leg by a live bullet fired by Israeli soldiers.
Witnesses said the soldiers opened fire at the students who were commemorating Arafat’s death anniversary injuring one.
In Arroub refugee camp, also in the south of the West Bank, Israeli soldiers attacked another student march using live ammunition and teargas, said witnesses.
One youth was injured in the belly from a live bullet and was taken by residents to a local clinic after soldiers prevented Red Crescent ambulances from reaching him. His condition was not immediately known.
