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 troops fired rubber-coated metal bullets and tear gas bombs at Palestinian protestors to quell the anti-settlement marches in Beita and Beit Dajan villages in Nablus and in Kafr Qaddoum village in Qalqilya.


Medical sources reported that three Palestinian young men were injured by rubber-coated metal bullets while several others suffered breathing problems in Kafr Qaddoum. 


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


Moreover, heavily armed Jewish settlers intensified their presence near the gate of Beit Dajan town while Palestinian protestors in the town demanded the opening of the gate which has been closed by the IOF since 2000.
