Israeli soldiers injured, Tuesday, many Palestinians during a protest near Huwwara military roadblock, south of the northern West Bank city of Nablus.
The Palestinian Red Crescent Society (PRCS) said its medics provided treatment to many Palestinians who suffered the effects of teargas inhalation.
The attack took place when hundreds of residents nonviolently marched to the area of the military roadblock denouncing the illegal Israeli policies, and the lawless American recognition of Israelâs illegal colonies, built on private Palestinian lands in the West Bank, including the occupied capital Jerusalem, in direct violation of International Law and the Fourth Geneva Convention.
The Palestinians also marched condemning the death of detainee Sami Abu Diak, 37, who died after Israel refused to allow him access to urgently needed specialized medical care.
In related news, Israeli squatters from Yitzhar illegal colony, burnt large areas of Palestinian farmlands, in Madama village, south of the northern West Bank city of Nablus.
The soldiers also shot two Palestinians with rubber-coated steel bullets, and abducted two teenage boys, during a procession at the northern entrance of Bethlehem city, south of occupied Jerusalem, in the West Bank.
