The army shot and injured one young man in the shoulder with a tear gas canister, his condition was not known at the time of this report.
Meanwhile, Quds Press reported confrontations between Palestinian youths and Israeli soldiers near Beita town, also south of Nablus, during what the young men term ‘night confusion’ activities near Mount Sbeih, and the illegal Israeli “Avitar” colony.
Eyewitness stated that young Palestinian men gathered at the site, and burned dozens of tires in an ongoing display of resistance to the continued settlement activities and settler attacks in the area.
Since May of 2021, the Israeli army has shot and killed nine Palestinian civilians in Beita town, who protested the illegal colonization of their lands.
