Weekend Saw Almost 300 Palestinians Treated After Clashes With Israel

At least 270 Palestinians received medical treatment after clashing with Israeli forces in the West Bank on Friday. The vast majority of injuries were related to tear gas, 50 were hit with rubber bullets, and seven were treated for gunshot wounds. The unrest was centered in the village of Beita, near Nablus, where demonstrators pelted Israeli civilians with rocks and hurled burning tires at Israeli soldiers. The trigger for the confrontation was construction work being done for an Israeli project being set up on a nearby hilltop on land the Palestinians claim for a future state of their own. Other clashes occurred at the funeral of 20-year-old Shawkat Khalid Awad, who was killed by Israeli forces on Thursday when violence broke out at the funeral of a 12-year-old boy, Mohammed al-Alami, who died amid the violence.
