Several Palestinians were injured by Israeli gunfire on Tuesday night as hundreds of Israeli settlers forced their way into Joseph’s Tomb in West Bank city of Nablus.
Israeli occupation forces escorted a convoy of buses packed with hundreds of fanatic Jewish settlers into the site, located in the Palestinian-controlled area, sparking confrontations with Palestinian residents.
Occupation forces opened fire on Palestinians protesting the raid and attempting to block settlers’ access to the Muslim site, injuring several protestors with rubber coated steel bullets.
Soldiers also showered protesters with tear gas canisters, causing several to suffocate. All suffocation cases received first aid treatment at the scene.
Jewish settlers repeatedly break into Joseph’s Tomb, located in a densely Palestinian populated area in Nablus, provoking chaos and confrontation with local residents.
