On Friday, Israeli soldiers shot a young Palestinian man and caused many to suffer the effects of tear gas inhalation in Beit Dajan, east of Nablus, in the northern part of the occupied West Bank.

Dozens of Palestinians marched in Beit and Beit Dajan, protesting the escalating Israeli violations and the illegal colonialist activities before the soldiers attacked them with live rounds, rubber-coated steel bullets, gas bombs, and concussion grenades.

Medical sources said the soldiers shot one Palestinian with a rubber-coated steel bullet in Beit Dajan and caused many 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.

Also Friday, the Palestinian Health Ministry has confirmed the death of a second Palestinian who was seriously injured after the soldiers killed a Palestinian man in his car.
