It added that one of the wounded residents was hit in the face by a gas bomb fired by the army, and was moved, along with three other residents, to the government hospital in the city.

The rest of the injured residents suffered the effects of teargas inhalation and received treatment by medics at the scene.

Also on Sunday, the army fired dozens of gas bombs into the Aida and Al-Azza Refugee camp, during clashes that took place at the entrances of the two camp; several residents were injured.

On Sunday around 7 in the evening, the army invaded Bethlehem and destroyed a vehicle that belongs to the Palestinian national Security, and hurled two gas bombs into it, no injuries were reported. The army claimed that the soldiers were chasing some Palestinian youths who hurled stones at them.

Clashes were reported in different parts of Bethlehem and several districts in the occupied West Bank after the army attacks protests in solidarity with Gaza.

It is worth mentioning that a 20-month-old child was killed when a gas bomb, fired by the Israeli soldier, hit him in the head, and burnt his bed, in Qlandia refugee camp, north of occupied East Jerusalem.

At least 78 Palestinians have been killed, and more than 680 have been injured since last Wednesday; the casualties include women, elderly, children and infants.
