Over 70 children among hundreds of Palestinians injured by Israeli forces in West Bank

More than 500 Palestinians, including over 70 children, were wounded as a result of attacks by Israeli armed forces over the past two weeks in the West Bank, a UN report has revealed.

A biweekly report published by the United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA) said 568 people, amongst them 73 children, were injured in assaults carried out by Israeli authorities.

It said out of those, 320 were wounded during demonstrations against Israeli settlement activities in the Nablus district.

Despite being illegal under international law, Israel has insisted that it will keep building settlements in the West Bank, large areas of which fall under its control.

Almost half a million people live in these settlements, alongside 2.8 million Palestinians.
