Palestine: Dozens injured in East Jerusalem clashes

By Saed Bannoura

Jerusalem, (IMEMC & Agencies): Palestinian medical sources reported that dozens of Palestinians have been injured by rubber-coated metal bullets and due to the effects of teargas inhalation during clashes with Israeli soldiers in Abu Dis town, east of occupied East Jerusalem.

Israeli soldiers also kidnapped seven Palestinian identified as Mahmoud Khaled Jaffal, Laith Sami Awwad, Morad Rabee’, Mustafa Abu Roomy, Sami Ash-Shamaly, Montaser Gheith, and Mohammad Khalaf. All were moved to the Maale Adumim Police station before being moved to Ezion detention center.

Medical sources reported that dozens of residents have been treated for the effects of teargas inhalation after the army fired dozens of gas bombs, and that several Palestinians have been shot by rubber-coated metal bullets, some to the head, and that most of the wounded have been moved to local clinics.

The soldiers also fired several rounds of live ammunition and concussion grenades.

The clashes were part of ongoing protests taking place in different parts of the occupied West Bank, including occupied East Jerusalem, following the death of detainee Maisara Abu Hamdiyya, 64, who died last Tuesday of an advanced stage of cancer resulting from the lack of medical attention in Israeli prisons.

On Friday, Palestinian medical sources in Hebron, in the southern part of the occupied West Bank reported that 39 Palestinians have been injured by rubber-coated metal bullets fired by the army at Palestinian protesters, and that dozens of residents have been treated for the effects of teargas inhalation.

On Wednesday, the army shot and killed two Palestinians during clashes that took place near the Anabta military roadblock, near the northern West Bank city of Tulkarem. Several Palestinians have been injured and at least three have been kidnapped.
