One of them was critically injured during the clashes between Israeli soldiers and Palestinian residents of Halhoul, the sources said on condition of anonymity.
Dozens suffered suffocation after inhaling Israeli army’s tear gas, they added.
According to the sources, Israeli soldiers fired live and rubber gunshots at the Palestinian demonstrators when an Israeli army force stormed the town.
