More than 100 Palestinians injured as Israeli occupation forces attack Burqa village

More than 125 Palestinians sustained injuries today during the Israeli occupation forces attack on Burqa village, according to medical sources.

The Palestinian Red Crescent (PRC) said that more than 50 Palestinians were injured after being hit with rubber-coated steel rounds, while another 80 sustained suffocation from inhalation of teargas fired by the Israeli occupation army.

Entrances to the village have been shut down with earth mounds by the Israeli occupation forces since yesterday to allow access of thousands of Israeli settlers to the nearby site of Homesh, a pre-2005 Israeli settlement that ultra-Orthodox settler groups are urging the Israeli government to allow them to return there.

Although violence and vandalism by Israeli settlers are commonplace throughout the year, attacks and acts of vandalism by Israeli settlers intensified during the past week across the occupied West Bank, especially in the Nablus province.
