Israeli forces attacked, on Sunday, a non-violent demonstration in the village of Al-Lubban ash-Sharqiya, south of Nablus, in the northern occupied West Bank, the Palestinian News & Information Agency (WAFA) reported.

Mayor of the village, Yaaqoub Eweis, stated that the occupation army opened fire at peaceful protestors who gathered to oppose the escalating violations by the army and settlers against the schoolchildren in the village.

The army fired tear gas canisters at the crowd causing several people to suffer the toxic effects of tear gas inhalation, in addition to assault by the soldiers causing various bruises.

Last week Israeli forces and settlers obstructed access to education for four consecutive days, while assaulting children in addition to teaching staff.

Ghassan Daghlas, the official in charge of documenting colonialist activities in the northern West Bank, told Quds Press that soldiers fired concussion grenades and tear gas toward local activists who gathered in solidarity with the people of the village.

Daghlas added that “Dozens of activists raised Palestinian flags, chanted against the continued attacks of settlers, and were beaten and suffocated by the occupation soldiers.”

The students were able successfully reach their school, on the main Nablus-Ramallah road due to the protection of the activists who stood in the face of the occupation army.
