Days Of Palestine – Nablus
Israeli occupation forces on Wednesday opened fire on Palestinians defending a mountain against settlers’ illegal colonial expansion near the West Bank city of Nablus.
Israeli occupation forces stormed Jabal al-‘Arma mountain, on the outskirts of Beita village, and opened fire on Palestinian protesters, killing a child and injuring at least 112 civilians.
The Ministry of Health affirmed that Muhammad Hamayel (17), succumbed to wounds after being shot in the head by Israeli occupation troops in Nablus.
Meanwhile, The Red Crescent affirmed that 112 Palestinians injured by the Israeli occupation forces.
Scores of villagers barricaded themselves in the mountain overnight to prevent illegal Jewish settlers from encroaching upon it to establish a new colonial outpost.
Palestinian medics confirmed that several villagers suffered from fractures and bruises for being beaten by soldiers and were rushed to the hospital for treatment.
