Israeli soldiers injured, Saturday, one Palestinian with a rubber-coated steel bullet in the eye, and caused dozens to suffer the effects of teargas inhalation in Bal’a town, east of the northern West Bank city of Tulkarem.

Media sources said several army jeeps invaded Bal’a town through its southern part, before the soldiers advanced towards Downtown area and the Schools Street.

They added that many Palestinians protested the invasions, and hurled stones at the army jeeps, before the soldiers fired many rubber-coated steel bullets, and gas bombs.

Medics rushed to the two areas, and moved a young man to a local hospital in Tulkarem city, after an Israeli rubber-coated steel bullet struck him in his eye.

They also provided the needed treatment to many Palestinians, who suffered the severe effects of teargas inhalation.
