Israeli forces injure at least 9 Palestinians in Beita

Nablus (QNN)- At least 9 Palestinian protesters were injured by Israeli occupation forces in Beita village in Nablus in the northern of occupied West Bank.

The Palestinian Red Crescent said the forces shot three Palestinians with rubber-coated bullets.

At least 4 others also suffocated from teargas fired at them by the occupation forces during the protests, including two photojournalists.

Others were injured with live ammunition shot by Israeli forces, including a young man who was critically injured in the mouth.

In early May, a group of Israeli settlers set up caravans on Jabal Sabih, and with the help of Israeli occupation forces have since prevented any Palestinian access to the area.

Since then, Beita has witnessed several protests against the new settler outpost on Jabal Sabih, which lies on the southern outskirts of the village and comprises an estimated 30 percent of Beita’s entire land area.

The livelihoods of at least 17 Palestinian families – more than 100 people – are threatened as they depend on harvesting their olives on land they have owned for generations.
