Geneva: At least 2,617 Palestinians have been shot and injured by Israeli regime forces using live and rubber bullets in the month of October, a Red Crescent officials says.
On Sunday, the Palestinian news agency Ma’an released a report quoting a Red Crescent spokesperson as saying that at least 760 Palestinians were shot with live rounds across the occupied Palestinian territory, while another 1,857 were hit with rubber-coated steel bullets.
At least 5,645 Palestinians sustained injuries, including burns from tear gas canisters and excessive tear gas inhalation. At least 72 Palestinians were also martyred in Palestinian territories by Israeli regime soldiers in October.
Tensions have been running high over the past several weeks between the Israeli regime and Palestinians in the occupied territories. The latest wave of tensions was triggered by Tel Aviv regime’s imposition in August of restrictions on the entry of Palestinian worshipers into the al-Aqsa Mosque compound in East al-Quds.
