Several Palestinians have been wounded during clashes with Israeli soldiers invading Tulkarem city, in the northern part of the West Bank, Palestinian medical sources have reported.
The clashes took place at the Shweika Junction, after several armored Israeli military jeeps invaded the city.
A number of local youth threw stones and empty bottles at the invading soldiers, while the army fired dozens of rubber-coated metal bullets, gas bombs and concussion grenades, in addition to several rounds of live ammunition.
Medical sources said that two brothers, identified as Rashid Barghouthi, 30, and Ayed, 25, were moved to Thabit Thabit Hospital in the city, while medics treated dozens for the effects of tear gas inhalation.
Earlier on Wednesday, Israeli soldiers kidnapped 17 Palestinians in Nablus, in the northern part of the occupied West Bank, and in southern Al Khalil. The army also broke into and violently searched dozens of homes, interrogating the residents. Several roadblocks were also installed in different parts of the occupied West Bank.
On Tuesday evening, Israeli soldiers shot and killed three Palestinians east of Yatta town, near the southern West Bank city of Al Khalil.
