Israeli settlers left one teen injured as Palestinian activists and farmers on Saturday erected a new tented protest village south of Nablus.
Around 200 supporters from across the occupied West Bank set up tents in an area of Burin village that activists say is slated for confiscation by a neighboring settlement.
Israeli forces immediately moved to shut down the area, and blocked traffic at the nearby Zaatara checkpoint, stopping several buses of activists destined for the village, witnesses told Ma'an news agency.
Soldiers fired tear gas and sound grenades to disperse the activists, and detained five Palestinians, they said.
Israeli settlers also raided the village and fired at the Palestinians. Zakariya Al-Najjar, 16, was hit by bullet in his thigh, a Ma'an reporter said.
Settlers managed to seize a trailer at the encampment, activist Salah Al-Khawaja told the agency.
He said fights broke out between Palestinian men and Israeli soldiers trying to remove them.
It is the fourth such initiative in recent weeks.
In January, Palestinian activists started a new wave of tented protest camps in the West Bank where Israel plans to build the "E1" settlement, severing the West Bank from Jerusalem. Israeli force dismantled their structures.
