The Palestinian Red Crescent reported that at least five Palestinians were injured by Israeli army gunfire in various areas of the West Bank.

Two children were reportedly injured in the Surif area, north of Hebron, two Palestinians were shot in the Askar camp, near Nablus, while another was injured by occupation forces in the town of Asira.
