NABLUS, Friday, December 9, 2022 (WAFA) – A Palestinian child today sustained an injury from Israeli army gunfire in Beit Dajan town, east of the occupied West Bank city of Nablus, according to medical sources.
They said that Israeli forces used fatal violence to disperse a rally to defend Palestinian-owned land, east of the town, threatened with confiscation to make room for colonial settlement construction, injuring a child by rubber-coated steel bullets and causing 10 others to suffocate from tear gas inhalation.
Palestinians across Historic Palestine have been rising up against decades of Israeli settler- colonialism and apartheid.
The number of settlers living in Jewish-only colonial settlements across occupied East Jerusalem and the West Bank in violation of international law has jumped to over 800,000 and colonial settlement expansion has tripled since the signing of Oslo Accords in 1993.
Israel’s nation-state law, passed in July 2018, enshrines Jewish supremacy, and states that building and strengthening the colonial settlements is a “national interest.”
