He added that the casualties were moved to the hospital for treatment.
Israeli soldiers regularly harass and attack Palestinian students. On September 29, Rayan Suliman, a 7-year-old Palestinian boy from the village of Tuqu near Bethlehem, died while being chased by Israeli soldiers, who accused him and his peers of throwing stones.
