On Friday, Israeli soldiers attacked the weekly procession against the illegal colonies in Beita town, east of Nablus, in the northern part of the occupied West Bank.

The Palestinians marched on their lands carrying Palestinian flags, chanting for liberation and independence and ending Israel’s illegal colonialist activities on stolen lands.

The Palestinian Red Crescent Society (PRCS) said the soldiers attacked the Palestinians with a barrage of rubber-coated steel bullets, gas bombs, and concussion grenades.

The PRCS added that its medics provided the needed treatment to 39 Palestinians without the need for hospitalization.

Some of the wounded were shot with rubber-coated steel bullets, but most suffered the effects of tear gas inhalation, cuts, and bruises.

The PRCS said some of its medics also suffered the effects of tear gas inhalation after the soldiers targeted them with gas bombs.

The Palestinians have been holding ongoing processions on their lands in Sbeih Mountain in Beita, and in Beit Dajan, 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 occupy it, the colony will lead to the annexation of 20 Dunams of Palestinian lands and would also lead to the isolation of a large area of Palestinian lands.
