Dozens of Palestinians were injured on Friday by the Israeli Army during the weekly clashes in the villages of Beita and Beit Dajan in the occupied West Bank province of Nablus, according to the Palestinian Red Crescent (PRC).
In Beita, Israeli occupation soldiers fired rubber-coated rounds and stun grenades at the anti-settlement protesters, injuring seven civilians, including an international solidarity activist. Another 30 cases of suffocation from teargas were reported.
Meantime, about 20 Palestinians sustained suffocation from gas inhalation during clashes with the Israeli army in the village of Beit Dajan.
For near six months, Palestinians from Beita and neighboring villages have been holding almost daily protests against Israel’s construction of an illegal settlement outpost, Evaytar, on Jabal Sabih mount which is adjacent to the village.
Several Palestinian protesters have been killed and dozens wounded by Israeli occupation forces during recurrent clashes over the past five months.
