Students Clash with Soldiers near Bethlehem

BETHLEHEM, November 19, 2012 (WAFA) -- Clashes broke out Monday between Palestinian students and Israeli soldiers in the village of Taqou, east of Bethlehem, critically injuring a student and causing several suffocation cases among others, according to an official.

Taqou mayor Tayseer Abu Mfrah told WAFA that Israeli forces shot 18-year-old Mohammad al-badan in his abdomen with dumdum bullets, which is designed to expand on impact to produce a larger diameter wound, causing him an internal bleeding and fracturing his pelvic.

Forces also fired tear gas canisters at the students, causing suffocation cases among them; some of them fainted.
