13 Palestinians were injured in fresh clashes with Israeli forces on Friday evening in the city of Beita, south of Nablus in the northern West Bank.
Ahmed Jibril, director of the emergency and rescue center of the Palestinian Red Crescent Society (Non-Governmental Organisation) in the city of Nablus, told Anadolu Agency, “4 people injured by rubber bullets received the necessary care at the site, while 2 of them were”. After clashes at a crossroads leading to the town of Beta”, Rafidia was transferred to the hospital (in Nablus).
He added that “a young man was also injured during a chase by the Israeli army and was taken to hospital.”
Jibril outlined that “at least 8 people had suffocated after inhaling the tear gas, and were taken care of immediately”.
On Friday evening, hundreds of Beata residents attended the funeral of 38-year-old Imad Ali Mohamed Dwaikat, who was killed by Israeli forces during the conflict, in which 59 Palestinians were injured.
The city of Beita is the scene of almost daily protests against the establishment of an Israeli outpost on private Palestinian land near Mount Sabih.
Although Israeli forces expelled the settlers from the outpost, on 2 July, the Palestinians continued their protest, refusing the maintenance of Israeli military control over the area and demanding the return of the land to its rightful owners.
According to Israeli and Palestinian estimates, there are about 650,000 settlers in the West Bank and East Jerusalem, living in 164 settlements and 124 outposts.
