RAMALLAH, (PIC)– A Palestinian youth was seriously wounded on Monday during clashes between Israeli occupation forces (IOF) and citizens at the Atara roadblock to the north of Ramallah.

Eyewitnesses told Quds Press reporter that Mohammed Awad, 19, was hit with a gas bomb in his head, which was fired directly at him by the soldiers.

A medical source in the Ramallah government hospital said that Awad suffered fractures in his skull and his condition was described as serious.

The confrontations erupted at Atara after citizens headed to the roadblock to mark the first anniversary of the death of an entire Palestinian family in the same place a year ago.

Awad is the brother of Bassam who died in the car crash in that area along with his seven-member family after an Israeli army vehicle collided with his car.
