Palestinian badly hurt in clash with Israeli army

Print PDF

A Palestinian student was in critical condition on Monday after being hit in the head by a tear gas canister when Israeli troops broke up a protest near Ramallah, medics said.

Medics at Ramallah's main hospital confirmed that 20-year-old Mohammed Abu Awad was in intensive care after being hit in the head by a tear gas canister.

Palestinian security sources said the student had been injured as troops broke up a rally in support of a hunger-striking female prisoner near the Atara checkpoint, three miles (five kilometres) north of Ramallah.

The Israeli military said it was not immediately aware of the incident but was looking into it.

The students were demonstrating in solidarity with Hanaa al-Shalabi, a prisoner who has been on hunger strike since February 16 to protest against being held by Israel without charge, a procedure known as administrative detention.

An Israeli court on Sunday cut her detention from six months to four, but officials from the Palestinian prisoners ministry said she was continuing to refuse food.
