Israeli occupation injures Palestinian in clash

Qalqilya (In Palestine Today)_ Violent clashes broke out on Saturday evening between Palestinian young men and the Israeli occupation forces (IOF) in Jayyous town, northeast of Qalqilya.

According to local sources, the IOF intensively fired rubber bullets and tear gas and stun grenades at the young men and homes in the town.

One young man was reportedly injured by a rubber bullet during the events and transferred to a local hospital for medical assistance.

The town is located in an area directly affected by the Israeli separation wall and illegal settlements and around 75 percent of its farming land is on the other side of the wall.

In order for local farmers to get to their swaths of land, they need Israeli military permits to reach their lands through gates at the wall.
