Days Of Palestine – Nablus

Nine Palestinians were injured on Monday by Israeli occupation army gunfire as hundreds of Israeli settlers forced their way into Joseph’s Tomb near the northern West Bank city of Nablus, said local sources.

Israeli occupation forces escorted a convoy of buses packed with hundreds of fanatic Jewish settlers into the site, located in the Palestinian-controlled area, sparking confrontations with Palestinian residents.

Soldiers opened fire on Palestinians protesting the raid and attempting to block settlers’ access to the site, injuring several protesters with rubber coated steel bullets.

The Red Crescent told WAFA news agency that three were injured with rubber coated steel bullets and that they were moved to Rafidia hospital, while six others were locally treated after suffering from suffocation due to inhaling tear gas fired at them by Israeli soldiers.

Settlers repeatedly break into Joseph’s Tomb, located in a densely Palestinian populated area in Nablus, provoking chaos and confrontation with local residents.
