GAZA (Bernama): One hundred Palestinians were injured on Wednesday (Sept 8) in clashes with Israeli servicemen near the city of Nablus in the West Bank, reported Sputnik, quoting the Palestinian Red Crescent.
"One hundred Palestinians have been injured in clashes with the Israeli military in the districts of Beita and Huwara near the city of Nablus in the West Bank," the organisation said on late Wednesday.
