Two Palestinians and an Anadolu photographer were shot by occupation


Eleven Palestinians were injured and dozens suffocated, including a photographer collaborating with Anadolu Agency, on Friday, during activities condemning the settlements in separate areas in the occupied West Bank.

According to a medical report and eyewitnesses, 3 Palestinians were wounded by live bullets, 6 by metal bullets, and two by fall.


The Palestinian Red Crescent Society said in a press statement that its crews dealt with 3 injuries with live bullets and 4 with metal bullets.

In addition to dozens, dozens suffocated from inhaling tear gas, while two others were injured when the Israeli army suppressed a march in the town of Beita, south of Nablus (north).

In Beit Dajan, east of Nablus, two photojournalists were injured during the dispersal of a march, one of whom is Nidal Shtayyeh, a photojournalist cooperating with Anadolu Agency.

Shtayyeh said that “the Israeli army fired metal bullets directly at the journalists, wounding him with three bullets in the left leg.”

In the town of Kafr Qaddoum, east of Qalqilya (north), said Murad Eshteiwi, coordinator of the Popular Resistance Committees in the town.


The Israeli army fired live and metal bullets, and tear gas canisters at hundreds of Palestinians after Friday prayers.

He explained that dozens of participants in the march condemning the Israeli settlement suffocated as a result of inhaling tear gas, and were treated in the field.

Palestinian youths threw stones at the Israeli occupation forces and set rubber tires on fire.

Every Friday, the Palestinians organize marches against settlements and the separation wall in a number of villages and towns in the West Bank.

Israeli and Palestinian estimates indicate that there are about 650,000 settlers in West Bank settlements, including occupied Jerusalem, who live in 164 settlements and 116 outposts.
