16 Palestinian Injured Near Bethlehem

 by Saed Bannoura - IMEMC & Agencies 
Palestinian medical sources in the West Bank city of Bethlehem reported, Sunday, that sixteen Palestinian workers were wounded when their van flipped over after Israeli soldiers chased it near Husan town.
The sources said that the workers suffered mild-to-moderate injuries, and were moved to local governmental hospitals in the area.

The workers said that an armored Israeli military jeep was chasing their van after they crossed the Green Line seeking work in Israel.

The workers did not have work permits; after their van flipped over, soldiers assaulted them before handing them to the Palestinian security forces in Bethlehem.
