87 Palestinians Shot by Israeli forces in West Bank, Gaza Clashes

Some of the Hebron wounded fell during the burial of Shadi Arafeh, who was killed on Thursday.

At least 87 Palestinians were shot and injured by Israeli forces during clashes in the occupied West Bank and Gaza Strip on Friday, medics told Ma’an.
The Red Crescent said 22 Palestinians were shot with live fire in West Bank clashes, with 12 shot in the lower extremities in Hebron and eight in al-Bireh.

A further 38 Palestinians were shot with rubber-coated steel bullets while 210 were treated for tear gas inhalation.

Clashes broke out in the Ras al-Jura area of northern Hebron, with medics treating the injured in the street.

Israeli soldiers used three Palestinian cars as cover from Palestinian youths throwing rocks while the passengers were still in their vehicles, witnesses said. The passengers were only allowed to leave their cars after several hours.

In Gaza, 26 Palestinians were shot with live fire as clashes broke out in the central and eastern Gaza Strip.

Palestinian youths set fire to tires along border areas, with Israeli soldiers opening fire in the al-Shujaiyeh neighborhood and east of al-Bureij refugee camp.

In southern Gaza, Israeli forces fired at Palestinian youths east of Khan Younis.

At least two of the injuries from live fire in Gaza were reported as critical, the Red Crescent told Ma’an.

At least 31 Palestinians have been killed by Israeli forces during clashes since the beginning of last month, or later died from injuries.

Over 9,000 Palestinians have been injured during the same time period in occupied Palestinian territory, according to documentation by the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs.
