The shooting took place during a protest near a refugee camp in Jalazon on Saturday.

An Israeli military spokesman said the forces attacked a group of around 150 Palestinians by firing rubber bullets at them, but were unable to determine the number of the demonstrators wounded.

Meanwhile, Palestinian security sources said that three Palestinians were arrested by Israeli troops near the security barrier in the besieged Gaza Strip.

The protests had been held against price tag attacks by Israeli settlers on Palestinian vehicles.

Israeli settlers regularly launch such attacks against Palestinians.

Price tag attacks are acts of vandalism and violence against Palestinians and their property as well as Islamic holy sites.

The presence and continued expansion of Israeli settlements in occupied Palestine has created a major obstacle to efforts aimed at establishing peace in the Middle East.

More than half a million Israelis live in over 120 illegal settlements built since Israel’s occupation of the Palestinian territories of the West Bank and East al-Quds (Jerusalem) in 1967.

The United Nations and most countries regard the Israeli settlements as illegal because the territories were captured by Israel in a war in 1967 and are hence subject to the Geneva Conventions, which forbid construction on occupied lands.
