On Friday, Israeli soldiers injured many Palestinians in Beita and Beit Dajan, south and east of the northern West Bank city of Nablus.

Ahmad Jibril, the head of the Emergency Department of the Nablus office of the Palestinian Red Crescent Society (PRCS), said the soldiers shot two Palestinians with gas bombs in their heads and caused seventeen to suffer the effects of tear gas inhalation in Beita.

Jibril added that two Palestinians were also injured in Beita after falling while the soldiers chased them.

He also said that the soldiers caused at least eleven Palestinians to suffer the effects of tear gas inhalation in Beit Dajan.

The Palestinians have been holding ongoing processions on their lands in Sbeih Mountain in Beita, and in Beit Dajan, since May of last year after a group of illegal Israeli colonizers installed an outpost atop the Mountain.

The soldiers injured thousands of Palestinians during these protests and killed several others, including children.

The Mountain, owned by the Palestinians, has significant strategic importance, especially since if the colonizers occupied it, the colony would lead to the annexation of 20 Dunams of Palestinian lands and would also lead to the isolation of a large area of Palestinian lands.
