On Monday evening, Israeli soldiers injured many Palestinians after the army attacked Palestinian cars driving on the al-Kafriyyat road, south of Tulkarem, in the northern part of the occupied West Bank.

Eyewitnesses said the soldiers closed the al-Kafriyyat road and prevented the Palestinians from crossing in both directions.

They added that the soldiers fired gas bombs at the Palestinian cars causing many residents to suffer the effects of tear gas inhalation.

The Palestinians had to leave the area and look for alternate ways to reach their villages and town south of Tulkarem.
