Dozens of Palestinians were injured clashes with Israeli soldiers in the West Bank against the Israel government’s annexation plan of the Jordan Valley, according to the sources.

The sources told media that Israeli soldiers on Friday fired rubber-coated metal bullets and tear gas canisters to disperse dozens of Palestinian protesters on the outskirts of the northern West Bank city of Nablus.

The soldiers’ gunfire wounded several demonstrators and dozens got suffocated after they inhaled tear gas, they said.

The National Commission to Resist the Wall and Settlements organises weekly protests and demonstrations against the Israeli confiscation of lands in the West Bank.

Walid Assaf, head of the Commission, told Xinhua that protesters will carry on peaceful demonstrations against the Israeli decision to build up a settlement post on the top of Mount Ebal in Nablus.

The Palestinian Islamic Jihad on Friday organized a march in Gaza city against the annexation plan.

The government of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has planned to annex Jewish settlements in the West Bank as well as the strategic Jordan Valley.

Late June, thousands of Palestinians have rallied in Jericho to protest against Israel’s unilateral plan to annex large swaths of the occupied West Bank and Jordan Valley.

Israel has promised to annex illegally-built Jewish settlements and the Jordan Valley, moves that were detailed in a controversial plan unveiled by US President Donald Trump in January.

The Palestinians, who claim all of the West Bank, Gaza and East Jerusalem, have rejected the idea.

“The annexation is a threat to the Palestinians and violates international legitimacy resolutions,” Saadi Abed of the Palestinian Democratic Union (FIDA) said, addressing the rally in Gaza.

More than 600,000 Jews live in about 140 settlements in the West Bank and East Jerusalem.
