Palestinians in West Bank protest US plan, clash with Israeli soldiers

 

RAMALLAH/HEBRON, Thursday, January 30, 2020 (WAFA) – A number of Palestinians were today shot and injured by rubber-coated metal bullets or suffocated from teargas when Israeli soldiers attacked protesters in Ramallah and Hebron in the occupied West Bank.

In Ramallah, a large number of Palestinians participated in a protest march to the northern end of the city where the Israeli army maintains a checkpoint known as the DCO.

Once the marchers, who responded to a call by the political factions in Ramallah to protest the US so-called deal of the century, arrived at the checkpoint, soldiers fired rubber bullets and teargas to disperse the crowds.

A number of people were treated at the spot for rubber-bullet bruises and suffocation from teargas.

In Hebron in the south of the West Bank, Palestinian protesters clashed with Israeli soldiers at more than one location, according to reports.

Clashes were reported at the city center where Hebron is divided into the Palestinian-controlled H1 and the Israeli-controlled H2 areas. Several people were treated for suffocation.

Similar clashes were reported at Arroub refugee camp and the town of Sair, north of Hebron, where soldiers also dispersed the protesters using teargas and rubber bullets.
