Medics: Gaza man hurt by Israel gas canister

GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- A 20-year-old Palestinian was hit in the face by a tear gas canister fire by Israeli forces in the northern Gaza Strip, medics said.

Adham ad-Dabaji was wounded when Israeli forces fired high-velocity tear gas canisters at a group of Palestinians north of Beit Lahiya.

He is being treated at the Kamal Udwan Hospital.

An army spokeswoman said forces used riot-dispersal means but not live fire to disperse the crowd.
