Israeli soldiers injured, on Monday evening, several Palestinians in Sebastia town, north of Nablus, in northern West Bank.

Mohammad Azem, the mayor of Sebastia, said several army jeeps invaded the center of the town, before stopping and harassing many Palestinians.

Azem added that many Palestinians protested the invasion, and hurled stones at the army jeeps, while the soldiers fired a barrage of gas bombs and concussion grenades.

Several Palestinians suffered the effects of teargas inhalation and received the needed treatment by local medics.

It is worth mentioning that the soldiers frequently invade Sebastia, especially when they accompany buses loaded with illegal colonists, into the archeological site in the town.
