Six Palestinians were injured, on Friday, when Israeli forces attacked a peaceful protest, in the village of Asira ash-Shamaliya, north of Nablus, the Palestinian WAFA News Agency reported.

Dozens of protesters gathered for the Friday prayer, near the northern West Bank village, to protest the Israeli threat of confiscation.

Israeli forces attacked the non-violent protesters by rubber-coated rounds and teargas, injuring at least six, according to the Palestinian Red Crescent Society (PRCS).

The PRCS said its crews transferred two of the injured to hospital, while four others were treated at the scene.

It added that Israeli forces fired tear-gas canisters towards its ambulances, hitting one of them, causing minor damages.

Israeli fired tear-gas and stun grenades were also said to have caused Palestinian-owned crops to burn in the area.
