HEBRON (Ma'an) -- A Palestinian youth was injured in the head with an Israeli rubber-coated steel bullet, on Friday, as Israeli forces assaulted Palestinian journalists during clashes in the center of Hebron City, in the southern occupied West Bank.

Medical sources confirmed that the injured Palestinian, who remained unidentified, was transferred to the Hebron Governmental Hospital to receive necessary treatment.

Sources described the injury as moderate.

Sources said that a number of other Palestinian youths sustained various injuries, including tear-gas suffocation, after violent clashes erupted with Israeli forces in the center of Hebron City.

In addition, Palestinian photojournalist, Musaab Shawar, told Ma'an that Israeli forces physically assaulted him and repeatedly cursed at another photojournalist, who was identified as Mousa al-Qawasmi.

Palestinian residents of the Old City face a large Israeli military presence on a daily basis, with at least 20 checkpoints set up at the entrances of many streets, as well as the entrance of the Ibrahimi Mosque itself.

Meanwhile, Israeli settlers move freely on the street, drive cars, and carry machine guns.
