HEBRON, Tuesday, November 29, 2022 (WAFA) – Three Palestinians today afternoon sustained injuries from Israeli army gunfire in Beit Ummar town, north of Hebron, according to eyewitnesses.
They said that the heavily-armed soldiers opened fire towards protesters in the course of confrontations at the entrance of the southern West Bank village, wounding three by live ammunition in their lower extremities and causing dozens others to suffocate from tear gas inhalation.
The gunfire casualties were rushed to local hospitals for treatment.
The confrontations broke out following the funeral procession of Mufeed Ikhlil, 44, who died of Israeli military bullet wounds to the head during a predawn raid in the town.
The father-of-six was indiscriminately gunned down during the confrontations, which lasted several hours into the night. Nine Palestinians were injured, including Khalil, who later succumbed to his wounds.
