Israeli forces shot, on Monday, six Palestinian young men and injured dozens of citizens when they confronted settlers who invaded the village of Qusra, southeast of Nablus, in the northern occupied West Bank.

According to local activist, Fouad Hassan, Israeli colonizers from the illegal “Yesh Kodesh” settlement outpost stormed the eastern side of the village and attempted to burn a Palestinian-owned feed truck.

When local citizens confronted the settlers, occupation forces provided them full protection, opening fire at the Palestinians rather than stopping the settlers.

Soldiers fired rubber-coated steel rounds and tear gas canisters at Palestinian residents defending their property.

Dozens of Palestinians sustained inhalation injuries, while six young men were shot and injured by rubber-coated steel rounds.
