Palestinians rallied today at points of friction across multiple West Bank areas to condemn the Israeli army’s carnage in Jenin.

Two youths were also detained by the army.
Forces also set up a military checkpoint at the northern entrance of Hebron city, where they stopped and searched Palestinian-registered vehicles, and inspected the identity cards of passengers, causing a heavy traffic jam.
Two journalists were also injured, while dozens of Palestinians suffocated by tear gas as Israeli forces attacked another condemnation rally at Huwwara checkpoint to the south of Nablus.
One of the journalists was also struck with a tear gas canister in the foot, while the other sustained bruises. A minor also sustained burns on his hand.
