Israeli forces injure Palestinian protestors

Ramallah, Israeli occupation forces have injured Palestinians, including a journalist, in a crackdown on a protest that erupted in the occupied city of Al-Bireh led by youth protesting the killing of a Palestinian prisoner inside an Israeli detention center, the Palestinian Prisoners Society (PPS) said in a statement issued Monday.

The PSS said that tens of Palestinian protestors have rallied at the entrance of the city, answering calls for a sit in by the student council at Birzeit University. Israeli occupation forces have met the protest with a hail of live ammunition, rubber-coated bullets and tear gas, injuring many.
