DAYS OF PALESTINE – WEST BANK – At least 165 Palestinians sustained injuries on Friday as Israeli occupation forces fired rubber bullets and tear gas shells to disperse rallies in different areas in the occupied West Bank.
In a statement, the Palestinian Red Crescent Society and field activists said medical teams treated 165 Palestinians in protests held in the West Bank cities of Nablus and Qalqilia.
In Beit Dajan town, Nablus, the medical staff dealt with 45 injuries, including “eight with rubber bullets, including two paramedics and a journalist, and 37 cases of gas suffocation, including two journalists.”
In Kafr Qaddoum, east of Qalqilya, 11 Palestinians were wounded by rubber bullets during confrontation with the occupying army.
On weekly basis, Palestinians hold demonstrations against illegal Jewish settlements in different parts of the West Bank, especially in Beita, Beit Dajan, and Kafr Qaddoum villages.
Israeli and Palestinian estimates indicate there are about 650,000 settlers living in 164 settlements and 116 outposts in the West Bank, including in occupied Jerusalem.
Under international law, all Jewish settlements in occupied territories are considered illegal.
