Palestinian protesters and Israeli troops clashed on Thursday following the funeral of a child believed killed by army fire the previous day in the West Bank. A Palestinian was critically injured in the violence.
The Palestinian Health Ministry said the injured man was hospitalized with gunshot wounds during the clashes in the town of Beit Ummar, near the city of Hebron in the southern West Bank. The Palestinian Red Crescent said it treated at least 12 people for gunshot injuries and tear gas inhalation.
Palestinian protesters hurled rocks at Israeli troops after the funeral of Mohammed al-Alami, 12, who residents say was killed by army fire while riding in a car with his father on Wednesday.
