Three Palestinians killed in Wesk Bank Gaza by Israeli Security Forces

JERUSALEM: Three Palestinians were killed Friday in the occupied West Bank and in the Gaza Strip, one after allegedly attempting to run down Israeli soldiers and the others in clashes with troops. Palestinian youths fought Israeli forces near the northern entrance of the West Bank city of Hebron, and the soldiers responded with live fire, witnesses said. "Uday Jihad Irshaid, 22, was killed by live ammunition in his chest during clashes in Hebron," the Palestinian health ministry said. The Israeli military confirmed using live rounds but not the fatality. "A violent riot is taking place in Hebron. Hundreds of Palestinians are attacking forces, hurling rocks and rolling burning tyres at them," a spokeswoman said. "In order to disperse the crowd, (forces fired) .22 calibre rounds towards the main instigators and warning shots into the air." Irshaid's 17-year-old sister Dania was killed six weeks ago after trying to stab security forces, according to Israeli police.(Times of Israel)
