Israeli soldiers injured over 80 Palestinians, including 2 medics, and damaged an ambulance during the weekly processions on Sbeih Mountain in Beita town & in Beit Dajan, near the northern West Bank city of Nablus. Villagers have been holding ongoing processions on their lands since May of last year after a group of illegal Israeli colonizers installed an outpost atop the mountain. During these protests, Israeli soldiers have injured thousands of Palestinians and killed several others, including children.
The latest victim of Israeli violence was Jamil Abu “Ayyash, age 32, killed with a bullet to the back of the head while participating in a peaceful protest and posing no threat.
Israel controls water resources from the river to the sea, illegally pilfering water from Palestinian aquifers and selling it back at exorbitant prices to Palestinians. Israel’s “water war” is just a facet of its ongoing settler-colonial project to make life unbearable for Palestinians, and ultimately replace them with Israeli Jews.
Imad Duikat was the sixth Palestinian to be shot dead by Israeli troops during recent protests against the settler outpost of Evyatar, and the 40th to be killed in the West Bank since May.
Imad Dweikat had been shot with ‘a live bullet to the chest’ in Beita, south of Nablus, the health ministry says. He’s the 8th Palestinian killed by the IDF in a little over a month

Israeli forces shot Mohammad Said Mohammad Hamayel, 16, with live ammunition during a protest in the village of Beita in the occupied West Bank.
