January 07, 2022

Beita, Occupied West Bank - Israeli occupation forces wounded four Palestinians with live ammunition, during confrontations that broke out in the Jabal Sabaih area in Beita, south of Nablus.

Director of the Palestinian Red Crescent Society in the West Bank's city of Nablus, Ahmed Jibril, said that four civilians were wounded by the Israeli occupying forces with live ammunition, two of them in the head, in addition to 15 civilians who suffocated with tear gas, during the confrontations in Beita.

The occupation forces impeded the work of ambulance crews when they sealed the roads leading to the confrontation zone off, Jibril added. 

Many areas in the occupied West Bank and Jerusalem have been witnessing confrontations with the occupation forces as popular activities rejecting settlement expansion projects, most notably in Beita and Beit Dajan.

In the town of Beita, south of Nablus, daily and weekly activities are organized as part of the steps aimed at removing the “Avitar” settlement outpost built on the lands of Jabal Sabih.
