According to a local official, four Palestinians were injured by Israeli army gunfire during clashes in the occupied West Bank on Friday.
Murad Ishtiwi, the coordinator of the local Popular Resistance Committees in Kafr Qaddum, said that Israeli forces used rubber-coated bullets and tear gas canisters to disperse a Palestinian protest against a settlement building in the town in the northern West Bank.
He added that the four injured protesters were treated on the ground.
Dozens of demonstrators were also affected by tear gas fired by Israeli forces, Ishtiwi said.
In the province of Nablus, similar clashes were reported in the towns of Beita and Beit Dajan.
Treatment was provided on the spot to dozens of people who suffered temporary asphyxiation from the Israeli tear gas, medics on the scene told.
Weekly protests have been witnessed in several towns in the West Bank against settlement building and settler attacks on the contact lines with the Israeli army.
According to the Israeli non-governmental organization Peace Now, around 666,000 settlers live in 145 settlements and 140 random outposts not licensed by the Israeli government in the occupied West Bank, including East Jerusalem.
