RAMALLAH, Friday, June 4, 2021 (WAFA) – At least two Palestinian protesters were injured today in clashes with the Israeli occupation army in the village of Ni’lin, to the west of Ramallah city in the occupied West Bank, according to local sources.
Dozens of Palestinian protesters were demonstrating near the village against colonial Israeli settlement construction, when soldiers fired live gunshots and rubber-coated rounds to disperse them. At least two were injured in the Israeli attack, and were moved to hospital for medical treatment.
Soldiers also fired teargas and stun grenades at the protesters to disperse them.
Palestinian villagers have been holding weekly protests in the same area amid fears of an Israeli plan to confiscate large tracts of Palestinian land there for the benefit of the colonial settlement enterprise.
Meantime, dozens of Palestinian protesters sustained suffocation from teargas as Israeli occupation soldiers attacked the weekly protest against Israeli settlements, which takes place every week in the village of Kafr Qaddum, near the city of Qalqilia.
