The Israeli forces ambushed youths at Jabal Sabih, south of Nablus, and a number of them were detained. A young man was injured during clashes in the neighborhood of Mount Karam Nimr, near Jabal Sabih, in the town of Beita. The young man was injured by live bullets in the foot and by a rubber-coated metal bullet behind his ear.
In addition to gas bombs, the Israeli forces fired live bullets at the restless youths.
The teenagers and residents of Beita maintain their nighttime operations in order to thwart the settlers' effort to confiscate the grounds of Jabal Sobeih and establish a new settlement outpost on the mountain's summit.
The Palestinians managed to burn two caravans in the settlement of Avitar, in addition to detonating a sound device atop Jabal Sabih.
In an alternative context, at dawn today, occupying troops destroyed and obliterated a number of lands and homes near Al-Raqim town in occupied Jerusalem.

Additionally, last Saturday, 3 Palestinians were injured by Israeli gunfire while protesting the Israeli's seizure of property east Tubas near the occupation's Tayasir crossing to create a settlement outpost.
Confrontations ensued between protesting inhabitants and settlers, who were protected by occupation troops and repressed the march by firing live bullets, rubber-coated metal, and tear gas canisters.
The UN Security Council is anticipated to meet today, Wednesday, to address Israeli breaches in Palestinian areas, as well as settlers' attacks in the West Bank and occupied Jerusalem.

He urged the international community to assume responsibility towards the Palestinian cause.
