IMEMC & Agencies: Palestinian medical sources have reported that a Palestinian man was shot by Israeli army fire, when Israeli soldiers attacks a funeral procession of a child in Beit Ummar town, north of the southern West Bank city of Hebron.

Spokesperson of the Popular Committee against the Wall and Settlements in Beit Ummar, Mohammad Awad, stated that a number of soldiers fired rubber-coated metal bullets and gas bombs at the residents while heading towards the town’s graveyard.
Awad said that soldiers, based on a military tower at the entrance of Beit Ummar, fired rubber-coated metal bullets, and that one resident identified as Ahmad Mohammad Sleiby, 45, was shot and injured in his back.
The attack led to clashes between local residents and Israeli soldiers who fired several gas bombs and concussion grenades; several residents have been treated for the effects of teargas inhalation.
Furthermore, Israeli sources have reported that one soldier was hit in the face, by a stone thrown by a Palestinian youth during the clashes.
Dozens of soldiers invaded the town, broke into and searched several homes and used their rooftops as monitoring towers.
Earlier in May, a young Palestinian man was injured by Israeli army gunfire in Beit Ummar when soldiers opened fire at residents participating in a funeral of a local old man.
