Israeli police spokesperson Luba al-Samri said in a statement that seven people were lightly injured while another obtained medium injuries, including four Israeli border guards. Al-Samri did not clarify if the remaining three injured were Palestinian.

Al-Samri added that all injuries were transferred to hospitals for treatment as the Israeli police opened an investigation into the details of the case.
