Israeli soldiers shot, Friday, two Palestinians, and caused dozens to suffer the effects of teargas inhalation, after the army invaded al-Midya village, west of the central West Bank city of Ramallah. Israeli bombs also caused fires in Palestinian farmlands.
Mohammad Rashed, the Mayor of al-Midya, stated that the soldiers fired many live rounds, rubber-coated steel bullets, gas bombs and concussion grenades at the protesters.
He added that a young man was shot a young with a live round in the leg, and another Palestinian with rubber-coated steel bullets. Both were rushed by local medics to a hospital in Ramallah.
Dozens of Palestinians suffered the effects of teargas inhalation, and others sustained burns and cuts, before receiving treatment by the medics.
Rashed also said that the soldiers fired a barrage of gas bombs and concussion grenades at random, many of them hitting Palestinian farmlands, setting them ablaze before Palestinian firefighters were called to the scene and managed to extinguish it before it spread.
