The Palestinian Red Crescent (PRC) said that 2,809 Palestinians were wounded and had received treatment in the occupied West Bank and Jerusalem by Saturday, and a further 622 had been injured in the Gaza Strip.

In a statement, the PRC said that 77 were wounded with live bullets in the occupied West Bank and 187 in the Gaza Strip, while 624 Palestinians were wounded with rubber coated steel bullets in both territories and 2,309 suffered suffocation due to the heavy use of tear gas.

Others were beaten by Israeli occupation forces in the occupied West Bank and Jerusalem, and injured as a result of Israeli air strikes on Gaza.
