Israeli troops firing rubber-coated bullets wounded seven Palestinian university students during a stone-throwing protest on Tuesday, the Palestinian Ma'an news agency reported.

The Birzeit University students were marking the one-year anniversary of the killing by Israeli troops of a classmate who allegedly had been throwing stones at cars belonging to Israeli settlers.

In the protest near Ofer military prison, troops fired tear gas and assaulted one protester, while two soldiers were wounded by stones, one in the face, the other in the leg, Ma'an reported.
