At least six Palestinians were wounded in an Israeli action in Ramallah
At least six people were hospitalized, three of them with gunshot wounds, after Israeli forces opened fire on Palestinian youths who threw stones at them during an Israeli operation in the Palestinian city of Ramallah in the occupied West Bank.
A witness told British media that a large Israeli military convoy arrived in the center of Ramallah, the seat of the Palestinian Authority, early this morning, causing hundreds of Palestinians to gather in the area.
Israeli forces, said to be on an operation to demolish a house in Ramallah, fired live ammunition, stun grenades and tear gas at a crowd of Palestinian youths who were throwing stones at them, a witness said, while videos posted on social media reportedly showed how Molotov cocktails were thrown at the Israeli forces.
The Palestinian Ministry of Health said at least six people were taken to hospital, three of whom suffered gunshot wounds.
