A total of 177 Palestinians have been injured in a new wave of clashes with the Israeli servicemen in the West Bank and in the Gaza Strip, mostly due to the use of tear gas, local medical organizations said.
According to the Palestine Red Crescent Society's figures, a total of 164 Palestinians were injured in the clashes that took place in the West Bank on Friday.
"Eight of them were injured by military bullets, 25 by rubber bullets, 131 were injured by gas," Palestine Red Crescent Society's spokeswoman Erab Fuqaha said.
Another 13 Palestinians were injured during the clashes at the Gaza Strip's border with the "Israeli" entity, Gaza Health Ministry spokesman Ashraf Kidra said.
Earlier in the day, the "Israeli" Air Force hit a Hamas observation post in the besieged Gaza Strip in response to a rocket shelling from the enclave against the "Israeli" entity.
Tensions between the "Israeli" entity and Palestine have flared up after US President Donald Trump announced in December that the United States would recognize al-Quds [Jerusalem] as the so-called capital of the "Israeli" entity and relocate the US embassy to the city from Tel Aviv. Since then, the clashes between Palestinians and the "Israeli" forces take place on almost everyday basis.
