BETHLEHEM, Thursday, January 31, 2019 (WAFA) – Three people were injured on Thursday from Israeli army gunfire, one of the critical, and others suffered from inhaling tear gas during confrontations with Israeli soldiers in the town of Tuqu, south of the southern West Bank biblical city of Bethlehem.
