Israeli soldiers injured, on Thursday evening, 38 Palestinians in the al-‘Ezariyya town, east of occupied East Jerusalem.

The soldiers invaded the town, attacked many Palestinians who protested the invasion, and fired gas bombs, concussion grenades and rubber-coated steel bullets.

The Palestinian Red Crescent Society (PRCS) said its medics rushed to the town and provided treatment to nine Palestinians who were shot with rubber-coated steel bullets.

It added that the medics also treated two Palestinians, who suffered burns, and 27 who suffocated due to the severe effects of teargas inhalation.
