NABLUS (Ma'an) -- Two Palestinians were injured by Israeli forces following Friday prayers, organized by locals in the eastern area of the Urif village in southern Nablus in the northern occupied West Bank.

Spokesperson of the Palestinian Red Crescent, Ahmad Jibril, told Ma’an that one Palestinian identified as Youssef Ali Shihadeh was injured with a live bullet in the back, while another Palestinian, Farhan Najm Kokash, was injured in the leg.

Both injuries were transferred to the Rafidiya Governmental Hospital in Nablus for treatment where they were reported as stable.

Locals told Ma’an that clashes erupted following Friday prayers, during which Israeli forces fired live bullets and tear-gas bombs.

An official who monitors settlement activity in the northern West Bank told Ma’an that locals removed dirt mounds that Israeli forces had placed earlier Friday to prevent farmers from reaching their lands in the eastern part of Urif.
