Israeli forces shot and injured dozens of Palestinian protesters with rubber-coated steel bullets and at least four with live fire in protests across the occupied West Bank on Thursday, medics and locals told Ma'an.
The four Palestinians who had been shot and injured with live fire were hit in the lower extremities during clashes in al-Bireh in the central occupied West Bank, while dozens more were injured with rubber-coated steel bullets.
At least 22 Palestinians were moderately injured by Israeli forces during the clashes, many of which were taken to the Ramallah Governmental Hospital for treatment.
An Israeli army spokesperson did not immediately respond for comment.
Clashes in al-Bireh have been ongoing daily since tensions heated at the start of the month.
Thursday's clashes in the area erupted following a march organized by students from Birzeit University and al-Quds Open University, in addition to other colleges, institutes and schools of Ramallah and al-Bireh.
While suppressing the student's march, witnesses said Israeli forces used rubber-coated steel bullets, live fire, tear-gas bombs and stun grenades near journalists who were covering the event.
A cameraman from television news channel, al-Arabi al-Jadeed, told Ma'an he was hit with a sponge round in his arm.
