Two protesters injured in clashes with Israeli forces near Nablus

 

NABLUS, March 9, 2018 (WAFA) – At least two Palestinian protesters were on Friday injured by gunfire during clashes with Israeli forces in the village of Lubban e-Sharqia, to the south of Nablus in the West Bank, according to local sources.

WAFA correspondent said Israeli army used gunfire to disperse some of the protesters in the village, injuring two of them with live shots in the lower limbs of their bodies.

Meanwhile, Israeli army fired teargas to disperse Palestinian villagers who were protesting against a provocative tour by extremist Israeli settlers to the village of Einabus, nearby. Several cases of suffocation from teargas inhalation were reported.

The settlers were reportedly attacking local villagers’ homes when the villagers confronted them by pelting them with stones.

Similar clashes also took place in many areas of the occupied West Bank and along the Gaza-Israel border on the 14th Friday of Rage against US President Donald Trump‘s recognition of Jerusalem as Israel‘s capital.
