Eight Palestinians were injured by Israeli army gunfire on Sunday, while settlers assaulted a ninth, in various parts of the occupied West Bank.

The Palestinian Ministry of Health reported, in a brief statement, that the number of injured Palestinians in the Jalazoun camp, north of Ramallah, had risen to 5.

It said, "Five injuries from occupation bullets arrived at Istishari Hospital from Jalazoun camp, including 3 whose condition was described as serious."

In addition to the five injured people from the camp, the Ministry of Health reported that medical teams at the Palestine Medical Complex dealt with “two serious and minor injuries from the town of Al-Mazraa Al-Sharqiya (east of Ramallah).”

Regarding the wounded in Al-Mazraa, the official Palestinian News Agency said that two young men were injured by live bullets “during colonists and occupation soldiers attacking the town of Al-Mazraa Al-Sharqiya.”

The agency quoted local sources as saying, "One of them was hit with live bullets in the head and the other was hit with live bullets in the foot."
