Welcome to Palestine Today, a service of the International Middle East Media Center,, for Wednesday, November, 30, 2016.

At least 50 Palestinians injured during Israeli army invasions targeting the West Bank and in Gaza navy ships attack fishermen. These stories, and more, coming up, stay tuned.

Israeli soldiers invaded, on Wednesday evening, Abu Dis town, southeast of occupied East Jerusalem, and clashed with many Palestinians near Abu Dis University, leading to the injury of 50 Palestinians, including ten who were shot with rubber-coated steel bullets.

The soldiers fired many gas bombs, rubber-coated steel bullets and concussion grenades, into the university campus.

The Palestinian Red Crescent said its medics provided the needed treatment to 39 Palestinians, who suffered the severe effects of teargas inhalation, 10 who were shot with rubber-coated steel bullets, and one who suffered burns in his arm.

Lawyer Bassam Bahar, the head of Abu Dis Land Defense Committee, said dozens of soldiers invaded the town, and surrounded Al-Quds Abu Dis University, before stopping many Palestinians and investigating their ID cards.

Bahar added that the invasion led to clashes between the soldiers, who fired dozens of rubber-coated steel bullets, gas bombs and concussion grenades, and local youngsters, who hurled stones and empty bottles at them.

Elsewhere, The Palestinian Prisoners Society (PPS) has reported that Israeli soldiers abducted, late at night and on Wednesday at dawn, fourteen Palestinians, including several children, in different parts of the West Bank, including in occupied East Jerusalem.

In the Gaza strip, Israeli navy ships opened fire, on Wednesday at dawn, on several Palestinian fishing boats, in the Sudaniyya Sea area, in the northern part of the coastal enclave.

Eyewitnesses said the navy fired many live rounds, and used loud speakers ordering the fishing back to the shore. The attack caused no damage or injuries, but forced the fishers to leave without being able to fish.
