TULKAREM (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces shot and injured more than 20 Palestinians during clashes on Sunday near the Palestine Technical University in Tulkarem in the northern occupied West Bank, medical source said.

Medical sources told Ma'an that 13 young men were shot and injured with live ammunition, while five others were hit with rubber-coated steel bullets.

The injured young men were reportedly evacuated to Thabit Thabit and al-Zakah hospitals in the area.

An Israeli army spokesperson did not immediately respond for comment.

Medical sources said two of the victims sustained moderate injuries.

Several other young men suffered from tear gas inhalation.

On Thursday, dozens of youths were injured during clashes near the university, including 12 youths who were shot with live fire and 20 with rubber-coated steel bullets.

The clashes on Thursday originally erupted after a march that set off from the university’s campus condemning Israeli violations at the Al-Aqsa Mosque and Jerusalem, and against recent Palestinian deaths at the hands of Israeli forces.

Clashes have rocked the occupied West Bank and East Jerusalem since the beginning of the month in a wave of escalating violence in the region.
