The Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP), the Popular Resistance Committees, Hamas movement and various Palestinian factions denounced the Israeli escalation and vowed retaliation to avenge the death of the slain Palestinians.

The Israeli army said two soldiers where injured during the armed confrontations with the Palestinians, and added that the two are in serious condition and undergone several injuries.
