RAMALLAH, Palestine (AA) - Dozens of Palestinians were injured on Tuesday in clashes with the Israeli army in the occupied West Bank, according to the Palestinian Red Crescent.

The Palestinian Red Crescent said its crews dealt with dozens of injuries after the Israeli army raided the Askar camp east of Nablus city.

One of the injured was shot with live ammunition in the foot, three others were hit by rubber bullets, and 185 people were affected by tear gas, the Palestinian NGO said in a statement.

Eyewitnesses in the camp told Anadolu that hours-long clashes erupted after the Israeli army stormed the camp to demolish the house of Abdel Fattah Kharousha who was killed in March by Israeli forces after killing two Israeli settlers in February.

On March 7, an Israeli army raid in Jenin resulted in the killing of six Palestinians, including Kharousha.

On Feb. 26, two Israeli settlers were killed in a shooting attack in the town of Hawara, south of Nablus. The attack was preceded by unprecedented attacks by settlers that resulted in the death of a Palestinian, injuries to dozens of others, and the burning and destruction of dozens of homes and cars.

In a related development, the Asra Media Office said that the Israeli army arrested 27 Palestinians from various West Bank provinces, including 12 from the village of Kobar, northwest of Ramallah.

Since the beginning of this year, the West Bank has been witnessing repeated Israeli army raids and settlers’ attacks on Palestinian cities and towns.
