The Palestinian Red Crescent (PRC) has reported that Israeli soldiers injured, on Wednesday evening, 23 Palestinians, after the army attacked protesters, near Qalandia terminal, north of occupied Jerusalem.

The PRC said the soldiers resorted to the excessive use of force against the protesters, and fired many live rounds, rubber-coated steel bullets and gas bombs at them.

It added that one Palestinian was shot with a live round, and four others with rubber-coated steel bullets, in addition to seventeen Palestinians who suffered the severe effects of teargas inhalation; one of them was shot with a gas bomb in the head.

It is worth mentioning that one Palestinian was also injured after falling from an altitude while the soldiers were chasing him.
