[Friday Evening October 11, 2013] Palestinian medical sources have reported that two Palestinians have been injured near the Ofer Israeli Prison, west of the central West Bank city of Ramallah.

The Israeli army claimed that three soldiers were mildly injured during the clashes.

The sources said that the two Palestinians were shot by rubber-coated metal bullets during clashes that took place near the prison, as Palestinian protesters marched demanding the release of all Palestinian political prisoners held by Israel.

Local sources said that dozens of Palestinian youths marched near the prison and hurled stones and empty bottles at Israeli soldiers who attacked them with rounds of live ammunition, rubber-coated metal bullets and gas bombs.

The soldiers chased the Palestinians into the streets of Betunia town, near the prison compound, and fired more gas bombs in the streets and at a number of homes.
