Dozens of Palestinian citizens suffered from exposure to tear gas, in Madama village, to the south of Nablus, during confrontations with Israeli soldiers and settlers.

Village chief Ihab al-Qut said that a hoard of Jewish settlers from the illegal settlement of Yitzhar, in Nablus, stormed the southern area of the village and fought with local youth, in the presence of soldiers who fired volleys of tear gas grenades.

Dozens of young men suffered from inhaling tear gas, during the events.

The settlers also set fire to many olive trees under military protection, while soldiers prevented local residents from going to their lands to extinguish the flames.
