On Friday, Israeli soldiers injured 56, including 17 children, Palestinians near the Huwwara military roadblock, south of Nablus, in the northern part of the occupied West Bank.

Dozens of Palestinians marched near the Huwwara military roadblock while chanting against the escalating Israeli violations, ongoing occupation, and illegal colonialist activities before the soldiers attacked them with rubber-coated steel bullets, gas bombs, and concussion grenades.

Ahmad Jibril, the head of the Emergency Department at the Palestinian Red Crescent Society (PRCS) in Nablus, said the soldiers caused fifty-six Palestinians to suffer the effects of tear gas inhalation.

Jibril added that 28 of the wounded Palestinians, including 17 children under the age of five, suffered the severe effects of tear gas inhalation while their parents were driving in the area when the army fired a barrage of gas bombs and concussion grenades at random.

The medics provided the needed medical attention to all wounded Palestinians and transferred a young man, 18 years of age, to a hospital.
