Palestine: Nine injured in Bethlehem clashes
By Chris Carlson
International Middle East Media Center: Nine young Palestinians were injured during clashes with Israeli soldiers near Rachel’s Tomb, during the night on Thursday. In Jerusalem, restrictions were placed again on worshippers at al-Aqsa mosque.

Tariq Jawarish, age 22, was hit in the foot with live fire, Ma’an has reported, and nine others suffered the effects of teargas inhalation as protesters marched against Israel’s ongoing invasion of the Gaza Strip.

Two youth were hit with rubber-coated metal bullets, in addition.

Furthermore, in Jerusalem, forces imposed restrictions on Palestinian worshipers entering al-Aqsa Mosque, on Friday.

“Israeli forces turned Jerusalem into a military base and imposed restrictions on worshipers entering the al-Aqsa compound for the second Friday in a row,” said al-Aqsa foundation via a statement.

Men younger than 50 were barred from entering the mosque for Friday prayers, and Israeli police set up barricades in both the Old City and around Damascus Gate, according to Ma’an.
