IDF troops injured some 39 Palestinians using riot control methods in Hebron, West Bank on Friday, according to Palestinian medical sources.

According to Palestinian news agency Ma'an, the protesters were injured by rubber-coated metal bullets fired at Palestinian protesters, and dozens of residents have been treated for the effects of teargas inhalation.

Maan reported that the clashes were concentrated in Bab Az-Zawiya, in the center of Hebron, in Halhoul nearby town, in Al-Aroub refugee camp, in Al-Fawwar refugee camp, and the At-Tabaqa village.

On Friday evening, one resident was shot by a live round in his arm during clashes that took place in Bab Az-Zawiya, Ma'an reported.
