West Bank cities today observed a commercial strike in protest against the Israeli army killing earlier in the day of three Palestinians in the northern West Bank city of Nablus and the wounding of 40 others in a pre-dawn raid of the city.

Shops shut down in Nablus, Hebron, Tulkarm, Jenin, Qalqilya, Bethlehem, Ramallah, Salfit, and Tubas.

In Ramallah, protesters marched in the city streets before going to the northern section of the city where they clashed with Israeli soldiers stationed at a checkpoint.

Clashes with soldiers were also reported in Tulkarm, Nablus and Hebron.

Several injuries were also reported in the Israeli army crackdown on these protests.
