NABLUS (Ma'an) -- Clashes between Israeli forces and Palestinians continued late into Sunday night amid anger in the West Bank over Israel's bombardment of the Gaza Strip.

Over 50 people were injured on Sunday at protests in Hebron, Ramallah, Qalandia, Bethlehem and East Jerusalem as 30 Palestinians, including 10 children, were killed in the bloodiest day in Gaza since Operation Cast Lead.

On Sunday evening, Israeli forces closed the road between Hebron and Halhul in the southern West Bank, sparking clashes with youths who threw rocks at Israeli troops.

Soldiers fired rubber bullets and tear gas, and three Palestinians were taken to the al-Ahli Hospital, said Red Crescent director Nasser Qabaja.

One was wounded by rubber bullets, another fell from after fainting from tear gas and the third suffered from tear gas inhalation, Qabaja told Ma'an.

In the northern West Bank, Palestinians clashed with Israeli forces late in to the night on Sunday near Huwwara checkpoint in Nablus.

Israeli forces fired tear gas and rubber coated bullets, and detained five Palestinians including two brothers from the Kalboneh family, a Ma'an reporter said.

Palestinian Medical Relief director Ghassan Hamdan told Ma'an that three Palestinians were wounded by rubber bullets and taken to the Rafedia Hospital.

Locals reported clashes with settlers in villages across Nablus, including Burin, Burqa, Furik and Urif. Jewish settlers set fire to a mosque in Urif overnight, a PA official told Ma'an.
