Israeli soldiers injured, on Saturday evening, more than a hundred Palestinians south of the northern West Bank city of Nablus, during protests against the Israeli violations in the Al-Aqsa Mosque and the rest of occupied Jerusalem.
The Palestinians marched close to the Huwwara Israeli military roadblock, south of Nablus before the soldiers started firing dozens of gas bombs, concussion grenades, and rubber-coated steel bullets at them.
The Palestinian Medical Relief has reported that the soldiers injured more than 100 Palestinians, many of them were shot with rubber-coated steel bullets and others suffered cuts and bruises, in addition to the severe effects of tear gas inhalation.
It added that the medics provided the needed treatment to the wounded Palestinians, and moved some of them to Rafidia Hospital, in Nablus.
The soldiers also closed the Huwwara roadblock and prevented the Palestinians from crossing.
In related news, the soldiers injured, on Saturday at night, dozens of Palestinians, during protests against the escalating Israeli violations in occupied Jerusalem, especially in and around the Al-Aqsa Mosque.
Also, the soldiers attacked protesters in the al-Fawwar refugee camp when the Palestinians marched from the center of the camp and headed towards its main entrance before the soldiers attacked them with rubber-coated steel bullets, gas bombs, and concussion grenades.
Dozens of Palestinians were injured and received the needed treatment by local medics.
It is worth mentioning that the Israeli military and police escalation against the Palestinians started on the first day of the holy Muslim month of Ramadan after the army imposed severe restrictions and installed dozens of roadblocks isolating the Al-Aqsa Mosque and the Old City.
The escalation was compounded by mass assaults and calls for further violence by extremist right-wing Israeli groups that called for expelling the Palestinians, and many of them calling or killing them.
The colonists are part of a right-wing Israeli group called Lehava, which organized the attack march with the stated aim of “restoring Jewish dignity” by “breaking the faces of Arabs”. [NOTE: read more about Lehava and other extremist groups here.]
