NABLUS, (PIC) – Violent clashes broke out on Friday afternoon near Jabal Sobeih in Beita town, south of Nablus, amid heavy firing of tear-gas bombs and rubber bullets on the part of Israeli occupation forces (IOF).

Dozens were injured during the clashes, including four journalists.

Local sources affirmed that two journalists were shot and injured by the IOF-fired rubber bullets, while two others suffered from tear-gas inhalation.

The residents of Beita and the surrounding villages have been holding weekly Friday rallies for months to protest the construction of a new Jewish-only settlement at the expense of Palestinian land in Jabal Sobeih.

The IOF soldiers have used lethal violence to disperse the rallies, killing eight Palestinians from the town and injuring over hundreds others.
