Israeli soldiers injured, on Sunday evening, sixty-seven Palestinians during protests that erupted after the army invaded Burqa village, northwest of the northern West Bank city of Nablus.

Ahmad Jibril, the head of the Emergency Department at the Nablus office of the Palestinian Red Crescent Society (PRCS), said the medics provided treatment to fifteen Palestinians who were shot with rubber-coated steel bullets.

He added that 52 Palestinians were also injured due to the effects of tear gas inhalation, in addition to cuts and bruises.

The invasion took place shortly after illegal Israeli colonizers hurled stones at Palestinian cars in the area, wounding four Palestinians and causing damage to the vehicles.
