OCCUPIER LASHING OUT, BUT PALESTINIANS STAY STRONG
Typical occupation behaviour: as it is losing (but causing much death and destruction) in Gaza, it lashes out at any semblance of Palestinian unity and lack of subservience in the ‘West Bank.’ Unrest is continuing in multiple locations there as Palestinians refuse to be divided and to lay down and submit to domination and oppression during the “Day of Anger.”

Ma’an English reports protests in Tulkarem, Safa village outside of Ramallah, al-Khalil/Hebron and Nablus. Occupation “soldiers” fired upon an ambulance evacuating the wounded.
Amid clashes at the Huwarra checkpoint south of Nablus, Israeli forces shot and injured six Palestinians with live fire, medics said.
As an ambulance was taking injured Palestinians to Rafidia hospital, Israeli forces opened fire and hit the ambulance, the sources said.
IOF killed two by live fire today, one in Tulkarem, a 22-year-old, and one in Safa. Earlier, in a march of thousands of Palestinians in Hebron, 90 were injured with live fire as well.
Odai Nafiz Jabr, 19, was killed in the village of Safa after being hit by two bullets in the chest and one in the hand.
Jabr was the second Palestinian to be killed in clashes with Israeli forces in the West Bank on Friday.
Five other Palestinians were injured by live bullets, one of them critically after being shot in the chest. Another 10 Palestinian were injured by rubber-coated bullets.
It has been reported by witnesses that it seems to be a new ammunition used by the IOF that causes significant injuries, but I am unable to verify this at the time of this post.
