IOF quells anti-settlement marches in West Bank

Clashes were reported on Friday afternoon between Palestinian youths and Israeli occupation forces (IOF) in several areas of the West Bank following the start of the weekly anti-settlement marches.

IOF soldiers fired rubber-coated metal bullets and tear gas bombs at Palestinian protestors to quell the anti-settlement marches in Beit Dajan village in Nablus and Kafr Qaddoum village in Qalqilya, leaving several Palestinian civilians injured.


Seven Palestinian civilians were injured by rubber-coated metal bullets in Kafr Qaddoum, while three others were wounded in Beit Dajan.


In a related development, Palestinian protestors called for removing the settlement outpost of Avitar in Beita village south of the West Bank city of Nablus.


In another incident, Israeli soldiers blocked the checkpoint of Huwara south of Nablus, imposing restrictions on the movement of Palestinian civilians’ vehicles, to facilitate a Jewish settlers’ raid into the town of Huwara.


Moreover, the Israeli police raided Jerusalemites’ houses in the At-Tur town, which triggered clashes.
