Israeli forces use live fire, tear gas on Palestinians in Nablus, injure dozens

A raid by Israeli troops in the West Bank city of Nablus has injured dozens of Palestinians, as occupation forces shot live fire and tear gas at crowds during their latest act of aggression in the occupied Palestinian territories.

According to eyewitnesses cited by the official Palestinian news agency WAFA, a large number of Israeli soldiers raided the eastern flank of Nablus from different directions in the early hours of Wednesday.

Clashes then broke out between dozens of young Palestinians and Israeli troops, with the latter firing bullets and tear gas, as Palestinians threw stones and Molotov cocktails, and closed off roads to prevent Israeli armored vehicles from entering the city.

There were also reports of confrontations between Israeli forces and Palestinian resistance fighters.

The Nablus Brigade, associated with the al-Quds Brigades, the military wing of the Islamic Jihad resistance movement, stated that its members fired at the invading Israeli army vehicles.

The Palestinian Ministry of Heath said a Palestinian youth with a serious injury in the abdomen and another injured in the thigh were transferred to Rafidia Surgical Hospital to receive treatment.

The Palestine Red Crescent Society (PRCS) also reported that its teams dealt with dozens of Palestinians who suffered breathing difficulties due to inhaling tear gas during the clashes.

Additionally, a man and his wife sustained gunshot wounds after Israeli soldiers fired shots at their car in Askar al-Balad neighborhood of Nablus.

Ambulance crews also treated a shrapnel wound to the eye of a Palestinian protester.
