UPDATE 2 – Israel kills 11 Palestinian civilians, injures 1334 in West Bank

A total of 11 Palestinians were killed on Friday as the Israeli forces clashed with them to disperse their rallies.

According to a statement by the Palestine Red Crescent Society, its medical teams dealt with 11 fatalities and 1334 injured cases in different parts of the occupied West Bank.

Following the Friday prayers, Palestinians took to the streets and clashed with the Israeli forces in around 24 locations across the West Bank in protest of the ongoing Israeli attacks in occupied East Jerusalem and Gaza.

Palestinian groups, including Hamas, called upon the Palestinians to rally across the West Bank against the Israeli ongoing attacks on the Gaza Strip.

At least 126 Palestinians, including 31 children and 20 women, have been killed, and 950 others injured in the ongoing Israeli offensive against Gaza.

Israel continues to target Gaza with heavy bombardment which caused heavy damage to residential buildings and economic facilities across the enclave.

To date, nine Israelis have been killed in the recent violence — eight of them in rocket attacks in addition to a soldier killed when an anti-tank guided missile struck his jeep.

Tensions have been running high in the Sheikh Jarrah area in occupied East Jerusalem over the past month as Israeli settlers swarmed in following a court order for the eviction of Palestinian families in the area.

Palestinians protesting for the residents of Sheikh Jarrah who have been targeted and threatened of expulsion by Israeli forces.

Israel occupied East Jerusalem during the 1967 Arab-Israeli war and annexed the entire city in 1980 — a move that has never been recognized by the international community.
