Israeli soldiers injured, Friday, dozens of Palestinians in Sbeih Mountain in Beita town, south of the northern West Bank city of Nablus.
Ahmad Jibril, the head of the Emergency Unit at the Nablus office of the Palestinian Red Crescent Society (PRCS) said the soldiers shot ten Palestinians with rubber-coated steel bullets, including two who were suffered head injuries.
Jibril added that 44 Palestinians suffered the effects of tear gas inhalation, and five others sustained cuts and bruises to various parts of their bodies.
He also denounced the ongoing Israeli violations against Palestinian medical teams and said that the soldiers closed the roads leading to the area of protests, preventing the ambulance from crossing.
The Palestinians have been holding weekly processions in Sbeih Mountain since May of 2021 after illegal Israeli colonizers occupied its top and installed an outpost. The Israeli attacks against them have led to hundreds of casualties, including many fatalities.
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.
