On Saturday, Israeli soldiers shot five young Palestinian men with live fire, including two who suffered serious wounds, after the army invaded Qarawat Bani Hassan town, west of Salfit, in the central part of the occupied West Bank.

Media sources said the soldiers invaded farmlands in the town and confiscated agricultural tools and equipment, leading to protests.

They added that the soldiers fired dozens of live rounds in addition to rubber-coated steel bullets, gas bombs, and concussion grenades.

The Palestinian Health Ministry confirmed the soldiers shot five young men with live fire and added that two of the wounded were shot in the chest and suffered life-threatening injuries.

Palestinian medics provided urgently needed care to the wounded and rushed them to Salfi governmental hospital.

The medics also treated many Palestinians who suffered the effects of tear gas inhalation before receiving the needed treatment.
