Still in the northern West Bank, a sizable military force, comprising over 50 military vehicles, barged its way into in the eastern neighborhood of Nablus city.

Snipers were deployed on the roofs of civilian buildings in the vicinity of Balata refugee camp and Jospeh’s Tomb as drones dropped tear-gas canisters and stun grenades at protestors there.

Palestinian Red Crescent medics confirmed that they treated four young men who were hit by rubber-coated steel bullets and another who sustained a burn injury in the hand.

They added that 12 others were treated at the scene for tear gas suffocation.

In Jerusalem district, the sources confirmed a raid in Qalandiya refugee camp, north of the city, resulting in the detention of another.

The soldiers showed up at a house in Biddu town, northwest of the city, muscled inside, conducted a thorough search and eventually detained another.
