NABLUS, Friday, June 17, 2022 (WAFA) – At least five Palestinians and two international solidarity activists were hit by rubber-coated rounds today and many others suffocated from teargas, as Israeli occupation forces clamped down on anti-occupation protesters in the village of Burin, to the south of Nablus in the occupied West Bank, according to medical sources.
The Palestinian Red Crescent (PRC) said seven civilians were injured by Israeli rubber-coated rounds in Burin, including two international activists, while another 22 people were treated for suffocation due to teargas inhalation.
WAFA correspondent said the Israeli occupation soldiers also attacked paramedics with teargas canisters, injuring one of them in the foot after being hit by a canister. The paramedic was moved to nearby Rafidia Public Hospital for medical treatment.
Bakr Abd al-Haqq, Palestine TV correspondent, was also physically assaulted by Israeli occupation soldiers while covering the Israeli attack on nonviolent protesters, added WAFA correspondent.
Last night, a group of rampaging Israeli settlers attacked Palestinian civilians and vehicles and sprayed them with pepper gas outside the village of Duma, nearby, causing cases of suffocation from gas inhalation.
