Israeli occupation soldiers attacked, on Friday, the weekly non-violent protest in Beit Dajan village, east of Nablus in the northern West Bank, injuring at least 40.

During the peaceful procession, villagers marched on their lands carrying Palestinian flags and chanting anti-settlement slogans, confronting the heavily armed soldiers.

The army opened fire at protesters with live ammunition, tear gas canisters, and concussion grenades, causing at least 40 people to suffer the toxic effects of tear gas inhalation.

Palestinians in the village have been holding weekly demonstrations to reject the continued Israeli colonization of Palestinian lands in the occupied West Bank.

Article 49 of the Fourth Geneva Convention states;

The Occupying Power [ISRAEL] shall not deport or transfer parts of its own civilian population into the territory it occupies [PALESTINE].
