On Friday, Israeli soldiers injured many Palestinians in Beita and Beit Dajan towns, south, and east of the northern West Bank city of Nablus.
Dozens of Palestinians marched to their lands, protesting the ongoing Israeli violations and the illegal annexation of their lands before the soldiers attacked them with live fire, rubber-coated steel bullets, and gas bombs.
Ahmad Jibril, the head of the Emergency Department at the Nablus office of the Palestinian Red Crescent Society (PRCS), said the soldiers shot two Palestinians with rubber-coated steel bullets and caused at least fifteen to suffer the effects of tear gas inhalation.
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.
