NABLUS, At least six Palestinians were injured and others suffocated by teargas on Friday during clashes with Israeli occupation forces in the villages of Qusra, Kafr Qalil, and Beita to the south of Nablus city in the occupied West Bank, according to medical sources.

The Palestinian Red Crescent (PRC) said Israeli forces fired rubber-coated steel rounds to disperse the protesters, injuring three of them.

Meanwhile, PRC said three other protesters were injured as a result of falling when Israeli soldiers chased them as hundreds were demonstrating in the village of Qusra, to express anger over Israel’s decision to confiscate tracts of land in the village.

Israeli forces also used teargas to disperse the protesters, causing about 24 cases of suffocation from teargas inhalation.
