Dozens injured in Gaza solidarity protests in Jerusalem, West Bank

July 30, 2014 11:11 P.M. (Updated: July 31, 2014 9:56 P.M.)
JERUSALEM (Ma'an) -- Dozens were injured as Israeli forces dispersed hundreds taking part in protests in solidarity with the besieged Gaza Strip across East Jerusalem and the West Bank on Tuesday night.

The protests have been a nightly occurrence in the region, and Israeli forces have killed 12 and injured hundreds in the last two weeks.

East Jerusalem

Clashes erupted in Sur Baher, al-Issawiya, Silwan and al-Suwwana neighborhoods of East Jerusalem.

Locals in Sur Baher said that clashes erupted after a group of Jewish settlers marched towards the village to "raid it" but youths prevented them from moving forward.

Israeli forces arrived and "provided security" for the settlers, locals said, assaulting Palestinians with stun grenades, tear-gas grandes, and rubber-coated steel bullets.

Witnesses said that soldiers fired tear-gas and stun grenades at al-Omari mosque, residents' houses, the village entrance, and nearby cars.

Two youths were injured with rubber-coated bullets in the head, and their injuries were reported as "critical but stable."

Israeli police reported that they detained a youth during the clashes.

Clashes erupted at the entrance to al-Issawiya village, in al-Suwwana and in the Ein al-Luza neighborhood of Silwan.

West Bank

Dozens suffered from excessive tear gas inhalation late Tuesday during clashes in the Dhahr area in southern Beit Ummar.

Clashes erupted near Karmi Zur settlement, and youths threw two molotov cocktails at soldiers.

Local popular committee spokesman Muhammad Awad said that Israeli forces used rubber-coated steel bullets and tear-gas bombs against the protesters, suffocating dozens.

Awad added that a settler also arrived on the scene and opened live fire as the soldiers watched.

No injuries were reported.

Several youths were also injured during clashes at the entrance of Yitma village in southern Nablus.

Witnesses told Ma'an that youths threw rocks and empty bottles at Israeli soldiers and set fire to tires at the entrance of Yitma village, while soldiers responded with dozens of tear-gas bombs and stun grenades.

Medical sources in the Palestinian Red Crescent said that several youths were suffocated by tear-gas.
