Nablus: Palestinians wounded in clashes following settler invasion

PNN/ Nablus/

Two Palestinian men on Thursday morning were wounded by Israeli Occupation Forces (IOF) who stormed the city of Nablus in the northern West Bank, alongside Israeli settlers.

IOF accompanied hundreds of settlers who were storming the shrine of prophet Youssef to carry out Talmudic rituals.

Clashes broke out following the invasion, during which two men were wounded by rubber-coated metal bullets. Sources said one of the men, age 30, sustained injuries to his right thigh and left foot, and another man, age 22, sustained several wounds to his body after the soldiers threw a gas bomb into his vehicle. Both were transferred to Rafidia hospital.

In addition, several citizens suffered from tear gas inhalation during the clashes, after soldiers fired tear gas grenades.
