Israeli occupation forces in the Gaza Strip have killed at least 10 Palestinians in the West Bank. More than 500 people were wounded in the attack. The incident took place on Friday.
Israeli troops had entered the West Bank in the name of “search operation”. At that moment, the young Palestinians started protesting and threw stones and cocktails at them. At one point, 10 people were killed when Israeli troops opened fire, reports Qatar-based media outlet Al Jazeera, citing Gaza’s health authorities.
There have been mass protests in the West Bank and East Jerusalem in protest of the attack on Gaza. Israeli forces launched a search operation in West Bank to quell the protests.
At least 137 Palestinians have been killed in Israeli airstrikes since Monday. About a thousand were injured. Among the dead are 36 children. Israeli forces have also detained more than 400 people.
