Ramallah (QNN)- Dozens of citizens were wounded today with Israeli metal bullets and bombs during the repression of several protests and prayers across the West Bank.

Beit Dajan

In Nablus, five citizens were wounded with rubber-coated metal bullets during the Israeli repression of a protest against the construction of a settlement outpost in Beit Dajan.

The protest started after Friday prayer and marched towards confiscated lands. Israeli soldiers opened fire at the peaceful protesters and targeted them with tear gas grenades.

Beit Dajan has been seeing continuous protests since the Israeli army confiscated part of the village’s lands.

Israeli settlers constructed a settlement outpost on the confiscated lands while the Israeli army started leveling lands in preparation for constructing settlers-only roads connecting the new outpost with settlements in the Jordan Valley.

Beita

In Beita, residents of the village confronted Israeli soldiers in several locations near Sabih mountain.

Israeli soldiers intensively used tear gas and rubber-coated metal bullets against the residents. Meanwhile, Palestinian young men burnt tires to prevent Israeli soldiers from shooting at them.

Residents of Beita have been protesting for 100 days so far against the Israeli confiscation of Sabih mountain.

Israeli settlers had constructed a settlement outpost on Sabih mountain, however, the continuous protests forced them to evacuate it. The protests now aim at recovering the area, which has been announced by the Israeli army a military zone and a religious school.
