Over 150 Palestinians injured in clashes with Israeli soldiers in Jerusalem

RAMALLAH: According to the Palestine Red Crescent Society, dozens of Palestinian demonstrators were injured amid clashes with Israeli soldiers in different West Bank towns and villages.

Five people were killed by live ammunition, four by rubber bullets, and others were injured by tear gas, as per reports, quoting the Palestine Red Crescent Society. Eyewitnesses said, dozens of anti-settlement activists burnt tyres and flung stones at Israeli soldiers stationed on the edges of the settlements.

Meanwhile, Murad Ishteiwi, the Palestinian coordinator of the popular resistance in Qalqilya, said that Israeli soldiers "brutally subdued the protestors by live ammunition and teargas" during clashes in the Kafr Qaddum village. The incidents have elicited no response from Israeli officials.

Several West Bank towns and villages were rocked by violence hours after 153 Palestinians were injured in clashes with Israeli police at the Al-Aqsa Mosque compound in East Jerusalem on Friday morning.  Tensions between Israel and Palestinians have risen throughout the West Bank and East Jerusalem in recent weeks, primarily during Ramadan, the Muslim fasting month.

In a statement, the Palestinian Health Ministry alleged that Israeli soldiers have killed 42 Palestinians in the West Bank since January, including women and children. Meanwhile, since March 22, 14 Israelis have been slain in a spate of shooting incidents in Israel.
