On Thursday evening, Israeli soldiers shot three young Palestinian men and caused dozens to suffer the effects of tear gas inhalation after the army invaded Beita town, south of the northern West Bank city of Nablus.

The Mayor of Beita, Mahmoud Barham, said the soldiers invaded the eastern neighborhood in Beita before storming and ransacking several homes.

He added that the invasion led to protests before the soldiers shot two young men with lives rounds in the shoulder and the arm and another young man with a rubber-coated steel bullet in the head.

Furthermore, the Palestinian Red Crescent Society (PRCS) said its medics also treated 55 Palestinians who suffered the effects of tear gas inhalation.

Earlier Thursday, Israeli soldiers abducted seventeen Palestinians, including one journalist, from their homes in several parts of the occupied West Bank, including occupied Jerusalem.
