The Israeli army fired rubber bullets at the Palestinians in the Israel Occupie west bank, which injured dozens of people.

The army fired bullets at the protesters who were protesting to defend their houses against the Israeli settlement building in the Palestinian territory.

The incident happened on Friday in different parts of the West Bank.

The army used rubber bullets, rubber-coated metal bullets, tear gas, and even live bullets to disperse the protests and silence the protestors.

According to the Red Crescent Society of Palestine, in the town of Bieta alone, the red crescent crew dealt with 147 people injured in the protests of which 9 were hit by live bullets, 34 by rubber-coated metal bullets, seven sustained burns, and 87 cases of suffocation due to tear gas inhalation.

In Beit Dajan, 5 were hit by rubber-coated metal bullets while dozens suffered temporary asphyxiation due to tear gas.

The Israeli army also fired live bullets as the Palestinians prayed for weekly Friday prayers in the town of Kafr Qaddum.

Israeli and Palestinian estimates indicate that there are about 650,000 settlers in West Bank settlements, including occupied Jerusalem, who live in 164 settlements and 116 outposts.
