Clashes between Israeli forces and Palestinians in East al-Quds (Jerusalem) have seriously wounded a Palestinian man.
The confrontation took place on Saturday during a demonstration.

"Demonstrators threw rocks and [fired] fireworks at police, who used anti-disturbance measures to disperse them,” said Luba Samri, a police spokeswoman.

Palestinian sources put the number of casualties at three, and said one of them was taken to the hospital in serious condition after being hit in the head.

Palestinians have been holding rallies in protest at the killing of a young Palestinian man last week.

Israel claims the man was killed during an arrest raid, but a video released after the incident shows an Israeli soldier getting out of his car and shooting at Hamdan directly.

Israel's Internal Security Minister Yitzhak Aharonovitch has said he fully supports the policemen involved in Hamdan’s death.

Following the unrest sparked by the killing, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu ordered a harsh crackdown on protests.

Palestinians have vowed to keep holding demonstrations in protest at Hamdan’s killing until the Israeli soldier who shot him dead is brought to justice.
