Israeli soldiers injured, Friday, 117 Palestinians during the weekly nonviolent procession against the ongoing illegal Israeli attempt to annex Sbeih Mountain, in Beita village, south of the northern West Bank city of Nablus.

Ahmad Jibril, the head of the Emergency Department at the Nablus office of the Palestinian Red Crescent Society (PRCS), said the soldiers shot one Palestinian with a live round in the thigh, thirteen with rubber-coated steel bullets, and caused 91 to suffer the effects of tear gas inhalation.

Jibril added that 12 Palestinians suffered fractures and bruises, after falling while the soldiers were chasing them.

It is worth mentioning that, on Friday morning, the soldiers closed all dirt roads leading to Sbeih Mountain, after placing sand hills on them, to prevent the Palestinian vehicles from reaching it.

The Mountain, owned by the Palestinians, has significant strategic importance, especially since if it is occupied by the colonizers 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.
