130 Palestinians injured in protests rejecting Israel settlements

Since midnight, dozens of Palestinians have staged a sit-in on Jabal Al-Arma mountain, following calls by settler groups to demonstrate in the same location and seize it to establish a Jewish settlement

130 injuries and suffocation cases among Palestinians were recorded on Friday, during clashes that broke out between protesters and a military force of the Israeli occupation, north of the West Bank in occupied Palestine.

Anadolu Agency reported eyewitnesses describing that an Israeli military force raided Jabal Al-Arma mountain on the outskirts of Beita village in Nablus, and fired tear gas canisters to disperse a sit-in denouncing the settlements.

The Palestine Red Crescent Society indicated in a statement that its medical teams: “Treated 90 Palestinians who were wounded during the confrontations near the village of Beita, including a 16-year-old child, who was shot in the back with live ammunition.”

The statement assured that the medical team took the child to hospital.
