Jerusalem24 – A number of Palestinians suffered from suffocation; as a result of clashes that erupted between hundreds of citizens and the Israeli military forces, as part of the “Night of Confusion” event that started yesterday evening, on the summit of Jabal Sobeih. The event was to protest against the establishment of a new settlement outpost in Beita, south of Nablus.
Munawwar Abdel Rahman, Secretary of the Fatah movement in Beita, told the Al-Quds Newspaper, “Hundreds of citizens arrived at Jabal Sabih this evening (yesterday), and ignited hundreds of rubber tires and sounded alarm sirens, in addition to many activities that came within the activity of the night of confusion that has been going on for days, in protest against the Establishing the outpost on Jabal Sabih.”
Yesterday, the Israeli daily Yediot Aharonot reported, what is happening in Nablus is similar to what is happening on the borders of the Gaza Strip. The newspaper added, in the context of the ongoing protests of the residents of Beita village against the establishment of the outpost on their lands, in recent nights, they began organizing night demonstrations known as “nights of confusion.” The paper pointed out that “the move was inspired by the activities of the Palestinian factions on the border fence in the Gaza Strip, and it now appears that the activity is also taking place in the West Bank.” Yediot pointed out that as part of the “night confusion” in Beita, during the night hours, dozens and sometimes hundreds of Palestinians gather near the center of the clashes, burning tires and throwing pipe bombs that make powerful explosions, and pointing laser torches and powerful flashlights at the eyes of the working security forces.”
