Residents Mohammad Ibrahim Farajallah, 19, Shadi Fadel an-Najjar, 17, Ismael Jubran Atiyya, 28, Qosai Shawqy Tmeizy. 20, Fadi Yousef Jeyyawi, 21, and Mo’taz Samih Salmiya, 21, were shot by rounds of live ammunition.

At least four more Palestinians were shot with rubber-coated metal bullets; they have been identified as Kathem an-Najjar Bilal Tmeizy, Hazem an-Najjar, and Mahmoud Sa’id Awawda.

In related news, two children identified as Ahmad Bashir Sleymiya, 13, and Mohammad Samir Sleymiyya, 14, suffered abdominal burns and cuts after a concussion grenade, dropped by the army in a previous invasion, detonated near them. They were moved to local hospitals and medical center.
