Palestinians confront Jewish settlers in Nablus, two injured

 

NABLUS, August 7, 2017 (WAFA) – At least two Palestinians were injured by rubber-coated metal bullets during clashes that erupted in Nablus in the northern West Bank early Monday after hundreds of Jewish settlers flocked to Joseph’s Tomb on the outskirts of the city.

Palestinian security sources told WAFA that an Israeli army unit gave cover to hundreds of extremist settlers who came to Joseph’s Tomb near Balata refugee camp to hold religious rituals prompting clashes between the Israeli soldiers and local Palestinian youths.

At least two Palestinians, 26 and 24 years old, were shot and injured by rubber bullets in the chest and back and were taken to hospital in Nablus for medical treatment.
