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.

On Wednesday, all Palestinian movements and groups called for clashes with the Israeli military to support Palestinian prisoners in Israeli prisons.

Over the last two months, the area of Beita to the south of Nablus has been witnessing clashes between Palestinians and the Israeli forces. According to media reports, the confrontation was caused by the building of a new Israeli settlement in this area that started in May.
