Israeli soldiers attacked, on Friday afternoon, dozens of nonviolent Palestinian and international protesters, in Budrus village, west of the central West Bank city of Ramallah.

The nonviolent protesters marched from the center of the village, while chanting against the ongoing Israeli occupation and escalation, and the illegal U.S. recognition of occupied Jerusalem as the unified capital of Israel.

Several army vehicles invaded the town, and started firing gas bombs, concussion grenades and rubber-coated steel bullets at the protesters, and at media outlets.

Medical sources said several persons suffered the effects of teargas inhalation and received the needed treatment.

In related news, the soldiers injured at least twenty Palestinians in the al-‘Isawiya village, in occupied East Jerusalem.
