Three Palestinians injured during Israeli settlers’ raid in Nablus’ Joseph’s Tomb area

Three Palestinian youths were injured by Israeli gunfire, while dozens suffered from suffocation, at dawn on Thursday, during confrontations with the Israeli occupation forces after they raided the eastern area of the city of Nablus, to secure the settlers’ storming of the Joseph’s Tomb.

The Director of Ambulance and Emergency at the Red Crescent in Nablus, Ahmad Jibril, said that two Palestinians were injured by live bullets in the chest and hand, a third by shrapnel in the back and foot, and a fourth by a gas bomb directly in the head, while 120 others suffered from suffocation.

He pointed out that a Palestinian man suffered a broken leg while being chased by occupation soldiers, and was taken to the hospital.

Jibril added that the occupation forces beat two Palestinians while they were inside a vehicle near, leaving them with bruises, adding that they were given first aid in the field.

He pointed out that the occupation soldiers targeted the Red Crescent ambulance vehicle with tear gas bombs while it was treating a casualty.

Red Crescent crews were able to evacuate three workers from the Nablus vegetable local market, after they suffered suffocation due to a fire that broke out in their workplace following it being targeted by tear gas bombs.

A family from the Dahiya area was also evaccuated after their home was targeted with tear gas bombs.

Large forces from the occupation army stormed the city of Nablus, accompanied by a military bulldozer, in order to secure the settlers’ storming of Joseph’s Tomb.

Later, dozens of settlers, protected by the occupation forces, stormed the said site and performed Talmudic rituals.
