Multiple warehouses burnt down in Beita village


On Friday a tear gas grenade, fired by Israeli forces after clashes broke out in Beita village, ignited a fire in a warehouse that contained plastic and cardboard which quickly spread, ensuing fires at more than eight other warehouses.

Locals say that the grenade was fired at the warehouse after clashes erupted in Beita village south of Nablus following the post-prayer solidarity protests.

Several Palestinians were injured due to massive amounts of tear-gas and one Palestinian was shot by a rubber-coated steel bullet, leaving him injured.

A local merchant estimated that millions of shekels worth of products were lost in the fires.

Israeli army says that it will look at reports on the incident.
