Two sustain injuries from Israeli army gunfire in Hebron

HEBRON, Tuesday, October 25, 2022 (WAFA) – Two Palestinians Tuesday afternoon sustained injuries from Israeli army gunfire in the southern West Bank city of Hebron, according to WAFA correspondent.

He said that the heavily-armed Israeli soldiers stationed at the permanently-staffed checkpoint at the entrance of al-Shuhada Street violently dispersed protestors in the course of confrontations in Bab Az-Zawiya neighborhood, wounding two by live ammunition in their lower extremities.

One of the casualties was handcuffed and detained.

Meanwhile, the soldiers quelled a similar protest at the Ras al-Jora and Halhul Bridge areas, close to the northern entrance of the city, causing dozens to suffocate from tear gas inhalation.

The soldiers detained three protestors.

Renewed confrontations between Palestinians and Israeli forces erupted today across the occupied West Bank following the killing of six Palestinians; five in Nablus city and another in Nabi Saleh village, northwest of Ramallah.

Palestinians took to the streets in various parts of the West Bank denouncing the army assault into Nablus that left five Palestinians killed and 21 others injured, including three critical, and the killing of a fifth in Nabi Saleh.

This came as Palestinians are observing a general strike in the occupied West Bank to mourn the six slain young men.

Shops were shuttered in all West Bank cities, schools and universities suspended studies and businesses shut down.
