To the west of Ramallah, at least three Palestinians, including a journalist, were shot and injured by Israeli forces during clashes in the village of Bal’in, according to local sources.
Meanwhile, Israeli forces Friday detained at least four Palestinians, including a minor aged 17, from the West Bank districts of Nablus, Jenin, and Hebron (Al-Khalil).
