WEST BANK (Dispatches) – At least seven Zionist troops were injured after a guard tower was targeted by Palestinians on Saturday with Molotov cocktails, in the Beit Ummar area, north of Al-Khalil, reported Hebrew media.
Reports added that the tower was targeted with a large number of Molotov cocktails, in addition to locally made canisters, which led to a fire inside the tower and the injuries of the soldiers.
The Palestinian media quoting local sources also confirmed that several Palestinians set alight with a Molotov cocktail the military turret belonging to the occupying regime troops.
The attack came a day after at least 37 Palestinians were injured during clashes with Zionist troops in the West Bank city of Nablus, Palestinian medics and eyewitnesses said.
The Palestinian Red Crescent Society said in a statement that among the injured were three shot by live ammunition and nine by rubber-coated steel bullets, while the others inhaled teargas fired by Zionist troops.
Fierce clashes broke out between anti-settlement protesters and Zionist troops in the villages of Beita and Beit Dajan, south and east of Nablus city, and in the village of Kafr Qaddum, east of Qaqilya city, said Palestinian eyewitnesses.
Murad Eshteiwi, coordinator of popular resistance in Kafr Qaddum village, told Xinhua that the Zionist troops used bullets, teargas, and sound bombs to attack the Palestinian protesters rejecting the measures against their village.
The Palestinian Red Crescent also confirmed on Friday the occupation forces injured the Palestinians participating in the weekly peaceful protests against the regime.
Zionist troops have recently stepped up deadly violence and suppression against the Palestinians taking part in peaceful protests.
The occupying regime faces growing resistance over its land-grab policy and demolition drive as anti-settlement sentiments run high in the occupied territories.
In late August, Zionist troops attacked protesters in several towns and villages near Qalqilia and Nablus. They also fired tear gas at anti-settlement protesters.
Between 600,000 and 750,000 Zionists occupy over 250 illegal settlements that have been built across the West Bank since the 1967 occupation. The settlements are all illegal under international law. The UN Security Council has in several resolutions condemned the occupying regime’s illegal settlement projects in the occupied Palestinian lands.
