WEST BANK, PALESTINOW.COM — At least six Palestinians were injured on Wednesday by Israeli gunfire in al-Bireh city in the occupied West Bank.
The Quds Press reporter said that violent clashes broke out between the Israeli occupation forces (IOF) and students from Birzeit University who were demonstrating in solidarity with the Palestinian prisoners in Israeli jails.
The protests also came in response to Tuesday’s events when a force of undercover Israeli soldiers broke into Birzeit University and kidnapped three students.
The IOF heavily fired stun grenades, live ammunition, rubber-coated metal bullets, and tear gas canisters at the demonstrators who responded by throwing stones and Molotov cocktails.
The Palestinian Red Crescent Society said in a statement that three Palestinians were injured by rubber-coated metal bullets, two by tear gas canisters, and one by live fire.
