Thousands of citizens from the towns of Silwad and Deir Jarir headed towards the lands located in the north of their hometowns and performed Friday prayers there. They have also tried to reach a hill controlled by the Jewish settlers, when the occupation forces started firing gas grenades and rubber bullets towards them.

Eyewitnesses told PIC’s correspondent in Ramallah that the Israeli soldiers have also used live ammunition against the citizens in an attempt to intimidate the owners of the agricultural lands and deter the demonstrators.

Dozens of citizens suffered from suffocation, while medical teams could not reach the place because of its distance from the main street.

An Israeli soldier from the border guards was also injured as he was hit by a stone during the confrontations

The villages located in the east of Ramallah are witnessing a state of tension due to the settlers’ continuous attacks on the villagers’ farms.
