In the village of Beit Dajan, two demonstrators were injured by rubber-coated bullets fired at them by Israeli occupation soldiers, while many others were suffocated by tear gas inhalation.
For more than six months, the village of Beita has been the scene of almost daily protests against Israel’s construction of an illegal settlement outpost near the village, called Evaytar.
At the end of the video, when asked where he was shot, the answer came “In his head”. I recently casually visited the village of Beita in occupied Palestine and as you can see even when they arrived they were defending the mountain from IOF and illegal Israeli settlers. pic.twitter.com/ZZgCgcfmgY

Although the Israeli occupation authorities evacuated settlers who resided in the outpost for nearly two months, Israel has kept the site under its control and does not allow Palestinians access to their lands.
At least six Palestinians have been killed by Israeli fire during ongoing protests in Beita in recent months.
