NABLUS, Friday, February 3, 2023 (WAFA) – Israeli forces Friday afternoon cracked down on anti-land-pillage rallies in Beit Dajan village, east of the West Bank city of Nablus, causing scores to suffocate, according to WAFA correspondent.
Israeli forces used fatal violence to disperse a rally to defend Palestinian-owned land threatened with confiscation, east of the town, to make room for the construction of a colonial settlement outpost.
The soldiers showered protestors with concussion grenades and tear gas canisters and causing dozens to suffocate from excessive 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.”
