Israeli soldiers invaded, Friday, the town of Beita, south of the northern West Bank city of Nablus, assaulted nonviolent protesters, marching in solidarity with the hunger striking detainees, and shot one Palestinian with live fire.

The Emergency Department of the Palestinian Red Crescent in Nablus, said the soldiers shot a Palestinian, 19 years of age, with a live round in his shoulder, before the medics transferred him to Rafidia hospital.

It added that at least nine Palestinians suffered the severe effects of teargas inhalation, and received the needed treatment.

The soldiers also surrounded the town, and prevented the residents from entering or leaving it.
