Days of Palestine – Nablus

Three Palestinian civilians were injured with rubber-coated metal bullets, and dozens of people suffocated with tear gas today, Friday, during the Israeli occupation forces' suppression of the Beit Dajan march, east of Nablus.

Eyewitnesses reported that a citizen was wounded by rubber-coated metal bullets in the head and taken to hospital, and two in the foot, and were treated at the place.

They added that the Beit Dajan march began in front of the Great Mosque in the village, where the participants stopped in front of the house of the martyr Atef Hanaysheh, who was killed a week ago by the occupation bullets, then the march went to the Al-Thagah area in the lands threatened by its seizure, where the Israeli occupation forces attacked the participants in the march.

Local sources reported that the Israeli occupation forces launched a drone to photograph the demonstrators and threw poison gas canisters during the clashes.

In the same context, the Israeli occupation forces tightened their measures at the Beit Furik checkpoint and prevented ambulance crews, journalists, and activists from entering and participating in the march.

A popular anti-settlement march took place in front of the Great Mosque in the town of Beit Dajan after Friday prayers, and dozens carried Palestinian flags.

Sheikh Atef Yusef Hanaysheh, 48, was martyred last Friday. He was hit by live bullets in the head, during clashes by the Israeli occupation forces after they suppressed the march east of Beit Dajan.
