Five Palestinians were wounded from gunshots fired at them by Israeli troops during riots in the West Bank and Gaza Strip, Palestinian sources said.

In the West Bank town of Kafr Qaddum, witnesses told the Ma’an news agency that Israel Defense Forces troops on Friday shot and injured three Palestinians, one of whom was a minor.

Murad Shtewei, a local Palestinian who organizes what he calls resistance activities against Israeli troops, told Ma’an that 9-year-old Ayat Zahi was shot in the hand while standing on the porch of her house in the area where clashes were taking place. She was taken to Rafidia hospital in moderate condition.

Across the West Bank and Gaza, Palestinians frequently stage riots on Fridays, often after praying at mosques.

Hamza Khaldoun, 21, and Abdullah Anwar, 40, suffered foot injuries in the same town. In Bilin, locals told Ma’an that 10-year-old Bashar Mustafa al-Khatib was injured from a rubber bullet in the head.

In Gaza, locals told Ma’an that a Palestinian was shot in the foot with live fire when clashes erupted with Israeli forces near the Nahal Oz checkpoint.

Clashes also broke out at the Karni crossing, the al-Bureij refugee camp, and in the al-Faraheen area of Khan Yunis, where no injuries were reported.
