"Palestinian medical officials say Israeli military fire wounded more than 25 people near the West Bank city of Hebron on Tuesday. The Red Crescent reports that potentially deadly fire had struck at least 10 of the people and the rest were shot with nominally nonlethal rubber bullets. A large convoy of Israeli military vehicles had entered al-Fawwar camp, near the flashpoint city of Hebron, witnesses said. A spokeswoman said the military fired to prevent a riot from escalating. The spokeswoman said the troops had conducted 'activity to uncover weaponry' in the camp when 'dozens of Palestinians hurled IEDs (improvised explosive devices), blocks and rocks' at them."
