Occupied Palestine – Israeli occupation bulldozers on Monday demolished two Palestinian-owned homes in the town of Beit Dajan in the eastern occupied West Bank city of Nablus.

Owned by citizens Emad Abu Hilwan and Adel Abu Hilwan, the two-storey homes, were demolished under the pretext of being built in Area C of the occupied West Bank.
Meanwhile, the Israeli forces that broke into the village attacked Palestinian citizens, who took to the streets to protest the demolitions, with rubber-coated steel bullets and tear gas canisters, injuring dozens of them.
According to the Palestinian Red Crescent, three people were shot with rubber-coated metal bullets and over 32 suffered tear gas suffocation
