International Middle East Media Center: Three Palestinians were injured by Israeli forces, on Thursday, during a protest near Hebron which followed the killing of Muatazz Washaha, 24, in the central West Bank, earlier in the day.

Local youth in al-Fawwar refugee camp threw stones and empty bottles at Israeli soldiers, who responded by firing rubber-coated steel bullets and tear gas, according to a Ma’an news report.

Israeli forces closed the main entrance to the camp and prevented cars from passing along the road as a result.
Washaha, 24, was killed during an arrest raid in Birzeit, early Thursday.
