Three Palestinians injured by Israeli gunfire in Hebron

HEBRON, Friday, July 1, 2022 (WAFA) – Three Palestinians were injured by live Israeli bullets today and many others suffocated from teargas inhalation during confrontations with the Israeli occupation army in downtown Hebron, south of the occupied West Bank, according to local sources.

Witnesses told WAFA that Israeli soldiers fired live bullets and teargas canisters at Palestinian protesters during confrontations which erupted in Bab al-Zawiya neighborhood in the city, injuring three of them and causing many cases of suffocation from teargas inhalation.

Almost every Friday, the day of rest and worship in Palestine, confrontations break out between young Palestinian protesters and the Israeli occupation army in the neighborhood, located in the old city of Hebron.

The city of Hebron is home to more than 200,000 Palestinian and about 800 notoriously aggressive Israeli settlers who live in compounds heavily guarded by Israeli occupation army and Border Guards Police.

In 2019, Israel expelled the only international monitors protecting Hebron’s Palestinians from 800 heavily guarded settlers, one of whom committed the 1994 massacre that triggered their deployment.
