Ahmad Jibreel, director of the ambulance service of the Red Crescent in the city of Nablus, told reporters that a young Palestinian man was shot in the thigh.
The other 16 were injured by rubber bullets, and four of them were taken to hospital.
Jibreel explained that another 40 suffered suffocation as a result of the inhalation of smoke from tear gas canisters used by the Israeli military, and highlighted that five minors were taken to a medical center for this cause.
The Wafa news agency said the clashes broke out when “dozens of extremist Israeli settlers raided the area of Joseph’s Tomb” under the protection of soldiers.
Israeli media reported that a colonel and two settlers were lightly injured during the clashes.
