Israeli occupation forces (IOF) on Monday evening shot and wounded 9 Palestinian citizens during confrontations in Jericho and Ramallah in the West Bank.

The Palestinian Red Crescent Society said that four Palestinian citizens were injured by rubber-coated metal bullets and four others were injured by tear gas canisters in Jericho.

Confrontations broke out in Jericho after the IOF closed all entrances leading to the city and prevented Palestinian citizens from taking part in an event against the annexation of the Jordan Valley.

Local sources said that the IOF attacked the protesting Palestinians with rubber-coated metal bullets, tear gas canisters and stun grenades, injuring 8 of them.

Meanwhile, a ninth Palestinian citizen was injured after he was shot by the IOF near Ramallah City.

Israeli media sources claimed that the IOF opened fire at a group of Palestinian youths who were throwing Molotov cocktails at settler vehicles, wounding one of them.

The IOF detained the injured youth and transferred him to an undeclared destination. No further information was given about his health condition
