Israeli forces 'open fire at ambulance' amid clashes near Nablus

Aug. 1, 2014 10:27 P.M. (Updated: Aug. 2, 2014 2:40 P.M.)
NABLUS (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces opened fire at an ambulance as it was bringing injured Palestinians from a site of clashes near Nablus to a nearby hospital, medics told Ma'an.

Amid clashes at the Huwarra checkpoint south of Nablus, Israeli forces shot and injured six Palestinians with live fire, medics said.

As an ambulance was taking injured Palestinians to Rafidia hospital, Israeli forces opened fire and hit the ambulance, the sources said.

No further injuries were reported. The six injured suffered light to moderate injuries from gunfire fired by Israeli forces during the clashes.

An Israeli army spokeswoman did not immediately return calls seeking comment.

Friday saw widespread clashes across the West Bank as Palestinians took to the streets to protest against Israel's ongoing offensive on the Gaza Strip.

Two Palestinians were killed by Israeli forces during the clashes -- one in Tulkarem and one in Safa village near Ramallah.

Additionally, some 90 Palestinians were injured by live fire in Hebron during clashes earlier in the day, as organizers said thousands of Palestinians marched through the streets to protest.

Clashes also took place near Ofer detention center south of Ramallah for a protest, and several were also injured there by live bullets fired by Israeli forces.
