Israeli assault on Palestinians: Live Coverage


Little coverage is happening on events in the West Bank. It seems that only Palestinian news agencies are actively covering the situation there.

According to Ma'an:

Nine youths were injured during clashes with Israeli soldiers near Rachel's Tomb [in Bethlehem] overnight Thursday.

Tariq Jawarish, 22, was hit in the foot with live fire and nine Palestinians suffered tear gas inhalation.

Two youths were hit with rubber-coated steel bullets.

Israeli forces fired tear gas canisters, rubber-coated steel bullets, and skunk water at a march protesting Israel's ongoing assault on the Gaza Strip, which has killed over 90 Palestinians.
