Three Palestinians were injured by live bullets, while dozens others suffered suffocation during confrontations with the Israeli occupation forces which stormed into the eastern region of Nablus to secure the invasion of Joseph’s Tomb by dozens of settlers.

Medical sources told Palestinian news agency (WAFA) that three Palestinians were shot by live bullets during the raid last night, two others were injured by gas bombs, and one was injured by shrapnel in the face, while around 52 citizens suffocated by toxic gas.

The Israeli occupying forces prevented the Red Crescent ambulance from entering to Balata camp to provide treatment for one of the injuries, as well as another ambulance from reaching a medical condition in the area, WAFA added.

Confrontations between the Palestinians and the Israeli occupation forces erupted after the forces broken into the city of Nablus from the eastern region. The forces launched gas bombs and fired at the Palestinians who came out to confront the settlers’ invasion of Joseph’s Tomb.

Last night, hundreds of settlers stormed Joseph’s Tomb and performed Talmudic rites under tight protection by the occupation forces.
