19 Palestinians injured by Israeli forces in al-Mughayyir

RAMALLAH (Ma'an) -- At least 15 Palestinians were injured with Israeli live bullets, while four others were injured with rubber-coated steel bullets, as Israeli forces suppressed protesters in the al-Mughayyir village northeast of the central occupied West Bank city of Ramallah, on Friday.

Israeli soldiers heavily fired live bullets and rubber-coated steel bullets at protesters.

Hundreds of Palestinians performed Friday prayers in an open village near the village before taking part in the march.

Protesters threw rocks in response to Israeli forces' fire.

Israeli settlers had killed a Palestinian father and injured 30 others after they attempted to raid the village, last week.

Residents of al-Mughayyir organize weekly protests in rejection of Israel's confiscation of the village's lands and against continuous attacks by Israeli settlers against villagers and locals.
