Several army jeeps invaded the town and started firing live rounds, gas bombs, and concussion grenades at Palestinians, marching in solidarity with Jenin and condemning the Israeli escalation in various parts of occupied Palestine.

Medical sources said the soldiers shot three Palestinians, including a child, 15 years of age, with live ammunition in the lower extremities.

They added that several Palestinians suffered the effects of tear gas inhalation and a few sustained cuts and bruises.
