UPDATE: Five Palestinians, including WAFA cameraman, shot, injured during clashes in Nablus-area town

NABLUS, Friday, July 23, 2021 (WAFA) – Four Palestinians were shot and injured with live ammunition, and a photographer working for WAFA was shot with a sponge bullet during clashes that broke out with Israeli forces in the town of Beita to the south of Nablus, in the northern occupied West Bank, said Director of the Palestinian Red Crescent's (PRC) Emergency Department in Nablus, Ahmad Jibril.

He told WAFA that forces attacked Palestinians with live bullets and tear gas canisters, shooting and injuring four people in their lower extremities, including one seriously.

WAFA cameraman, Ayman al-Nobani was struck with a sponge bullet in the thigh.

Dozens of others were treated at the scene from tear-gas suffocation.

Residents from Beita and other nearby villages have been protesting, day and night, the establishment of the settlement on their lands since the first day the settlers had stormed Jabal Sabih two months ago. So far, five Palestinians have been killed by Israeli army gunfire during these protests, four of them from Beita and one from Yatma.
