Ahmed Jibril, director of ambulance and emergency services at the Red Crescent in Nablus, told the official agency that three civilians, including two boys, were wounded by live bullets, two in the thigh and one in the foot, during the assault on the Balata refugee camp, and described their condition as stable.
