Anti Trump protests

Dozens of Palestinians were left injured on Thursday evening in clashes with the Israeli occupation forces in Tulkarem province.

The occupation army stormed Kadoorie Technical University in Tulkarem and attacked students and protesters with live rounds and teargas canisters in such a remarkably frenzy-stricken manner.

Fierce clashes extended from the Kadoorie campus to Netanya checkpoint, west of Tulkarem.

Heavily-armed Israeli patrols came down heavily on the Palestinian protesters.

Paramedics showed up in the area to evacuate the wounded protesters.

Red Crescent paramedics said at least 54 Palestinians were treated for injuries sustained in the clashes, 42 among them choked on teargas and seven others were rushed to hospitals. Four Palestinians also sustained rubber bullet wounds.

Another round of clashes rocked Zeita town, north of Tulkarem, after Israeli military troops rolled into the area and sealed off its main entrance with a makeshift checkpoint.

The occupation patrols showered the area with teargas canisters and bullet fire, leaving several anti-occupation protesters wounded.

Over recent days, hundreds of Palestinians have been left injured in simmering clashes across the occupied West Bank that ensued shortly after the U.S. President Donald Trump recognized Jerusalem as Israel’s capital.
