Israeli forces repressed, on Friday, two non-violent demonstrations in the northern occupied West Bank towns of Beita and Beit Dajan, injuring dozens, according to medical sources.

The Palestinian Red Crescent Society (PRCS) stated that in Beita, southeast of Nablus, seven people were injured with rubber-coated steel rounds and stun grenades, fired at them by Israeli soldiers, including one international activist, while thirty people suffocated from teargas inhalation.

Several Palestinian protesters have been killed by Israeli forces during the weekly protests in Beita, in rejection of the Israeli occupation’s colonial schemes in the West Bank.

In Beit Dajan, southeast of Nablus city, Israeli forces attacked a peaceful demonstration, causing at least twenty Palestinian civilians to suffer the effects of teargas inhalation.

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].
