Meanwhile, dozens of Palestinians suffered breathing problems after IOF soldiers attacked the tree-planting march east of Beit Dajan, east of Nablus, on Friday morning.
Eyewitnesses reported that IOF fired rubber-coated metal bullets, tear gas and sound bombs at the participants in the event. Dozens of civilians suffered breathing difficulty and a number of them were taken to hospitals.
