Palestinians in the besieged Gaza Strip took to the streets and border areas in mass protests on Sunday night to denounce the Israeli wave of violence in occupied Nablus.
Following the Israeli settlers’ attacks in Nablus, dozens of Palestinian youths gathered in the eastern areas of the Gaza Strip expressing their support for Nablus.
The youths burnt tires and chanted slogans that denounce the Israeli settlers’ violence in Huwara town and other parts of the occupied West Bank.
Local sources reported that Israeli forces opened fire at protesters and injured at least two Palestinians east of Jabalia, north of the Gaza Strip.
Several protests and marches were held also in different parts of the Gaza Strip and West Bank, denouncing the Israeli barbaric attacks on Nablus.
These protests came following waves of fierce attacks carried out last night by Israeli settlers in the occupied West Bank, mainly in Nablus.
The settlers’ attacks in Nablus caused the death of one Palestinian and the injury of a hundred others. Settlers also set fire to dozens of Palestinian homes and vehicles.
About 700,000 Israeli settlers live currently in more than 200 settlements built on Palestinian land considered illegal under international law.
Palestinian figures showed that Israeli occupation forces and settlers carried out 700 attacks against Palestinians and their properties in the occupied West Bank in January 2023.
The attacks included assaulting Palestinians, uprooting trees, razing lands, seizing properties, burning and vandalizing vehicles, and closing roads.
