Israeli soldiers attacked, Friday, dozens of Palestinians who marched from al-‘Azza refugee camp, to the northern entrance of Bethlehem city, in the occupied West Bank, before the soldiers started firing gas bombs and concussion grenades at them.

Media sources in Bethlehem said the Palestinians were nonviolently marching against the U.S. President’s illegal recognition of occupied Jerusalem as the unified capital of Israel, and chanted against the ongoing Israeli occupation and escalation.

The protesters also chanted for national unity and steadfastness in countering the Israeli occupation, and the illegal policies of U.S. President Donald Trump.

The soldiers fired dozens of gas bombs and concussion grenades at the protesters, causing many to suffer the effects of teargas inhalation.
