At least 78 Palestinians injured after Israeli forces attack protests in West Bank

At least 78 people were injured after Israeli forces attacked protest rallies against the regime’s settler-colonial activities in the northern part of the occupied West Bank on Friday.

The protests, which have become a weekly affair, erupted in and around the West Bank city of Nablus after Friday prayers, with Israeli regime forces using indiscriminate force to quell them.

The Palestine Red Crescent Society, a humanitarian organization working under the aegis of the International Red Cross, said at least 78 protesters were injured, including international solidarity activists.

Reports said protests took place in the villages of Beit Dajan, Qaryut, and Kafr Qaddum, and the neighboring governorate of Qalqilia.

According to the Palestinian Information Center, Palestinians marched through the villages in support of their cause of liberation from the Israeli occupation and aggression.

Israeli forces, it said, confronted the protesters with live bullets, tear gas canisters, and sound grenades.

Elsewhere in the West Bank, Israeli settlers attacked Palestinian farmers, who were tilling their land.

A 64-year-old farmer was reportedly injured as a result of the settlers’ savagery east of the city of al-Khalil (Hebron) in the southern part of West Bank.
