On Friday, Israeli soldiers injured many Palestinians during the weekly procession in Beita and Beit Dajan towns, south and east of Nablus, in the northern part of the occupied West Bank.

Ahmad Jibril, the head of the Emergency Department of the Nablus office of the Palestinian Red Crescent Society (PRCS), said the soldiers caused ten Palestinians to suffer the effects of tear gas inhalation.

He added that PRCS medics provided the needed treatment to the wounded without hospitalizing any of them.

The soldiers also attacked the weekly procession in Beit Dajan, east of Nablus, and fired many gas bombs and concussion grenades at them.

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