Nablus, June 17 (QNA) - Dozens of Palestinian citizens and foreign solidarity activists were injured Friday, as a result of the Israeli occupation forces' suppression of activities against settlements in the city of Nablus in the occupied West Bank.
Local sources said that the occupation forces fired rubber-coated bullets and sound and gas canisters at the participants in the anti-settlement activities in the town of Burin, south of Nablus, causing more than 33 injuries.
Dozens of settlers also stormed Khirbet Tana, near Beit Furik, east of Nablus, where they performed Talmudic rituals, and attacked the Palestinians in the area.
Dozens of settlers, under the protection of the occupation forces, also stormed the Qaryut spring in the town of Qaryut, south of Nablus, which led to the outbreak of confrontations between the townspeople and the occupation forces and settlers.
In addition, 11 Palestinians were injured by rubber bullets, and dozens suffered from suffocation during the weekly anti-settlement rally in Kafr Qaddum.
Meanwhile, an elderly man was injured and bruised, when settlers attacked him while he was working on his land east of Hebron in the south of the occupied West Bank.
Witnesses said that the Palestinian citizen suffered moderate wounds and bruises from the settlers' assault on him while he was on his land neighboring the entrance to the Kiryat Arba settlement, which is built on Palestinian lands east of Hebron. He was transferred to hospital to receive medical care. (QNA)
