Injuries by Israeli gunfire in confrontations near Nablus

NABLUS, Friday, May 27, 2022 (WAFA) – Several Palestinians were injured by Israeli gunfire today during confrontations with the Israeli occupation forces in the villages of Huwwara, Beit Dajan and Beita in the occupied West Bank province of Nablus, according to medical sources.

In Huwwara, south of Nablus, two Palestinians were injured by live shots in their feet and a third one hit by a stun grenade, and were moved to a nearby hospital for medical treatment, said the Palestinian Red Crescent (PRC).

Other Palestinian protesters were pepper-sprayed by Israeli occupation forces in the village, including four children and an elderly man. They were treated at a local emergency center.

Confrontations also erupted between Palestinian anti-occupation protesters and Israeli troops in the neighboring villages of Beita and Beit Dajan, where two Palestinians were injured by rubber-coated rounds and many others suffocated from teargas inhalation.

Almost every Friday, the weekly day of rest and worship in Palestine, Palestinians organize anti-occupation protests in many areas of the occupied West Bank following Friday prayer to express their resentment of the Israeli military occupation and colonial settlement policy.
