Israeli forces shot five Palestinians, on Sunday, when illegal Israeli colonizers attacked a home in the village of Orif, south of Nablus in the northern occupied West Bank.

At least six Palestinian citizens, including a child, sustained injuries, during an invasion by illegal Israeli colonizers, under the protection of the army, in the village of Orif, south of Nablus.

Media sources said that on Sunday afternoon, a group of illegal colonizers, backed by Israeli soldiers, attacked the home of the citizen, Issam Al-Safadi, and set a vehicle on fire.

When local citizens attempted to confront the invading settlers, occupation forces opened fire with live rounds, towards those trying to protect their homes and properties.

According to the Palestinian Red Crescent Society (PRCS), their ambulance crews transported six wounded Palestinians to hospital, noting that the army detained one of its ambulances which was transporting a patient to Rafidia Hospital in Nablus.

The PRCS said that among those injured was a 15-year-old child who was shot in the shoulder with live rounds, a young man who was shot in the pelvis, another who sustained a shrapnel injury, and another who was struck in the hand with a rock, hurled by the attacking settlers.
