WEST BANK, (PIC)– Israeli occupation forces (IOF) stormed last night the town of Burin, south of Nablus, searching a number of the houses in the village.
According to the citizen Mazen al-Najjar, more than 15 military jeeps and dozens of soldiers stormed the town, where they erected a barrier at the entrance of the town and they began searching the cars and detaining a number of citizens.
Al-Najjar confirmed that the occupation forces closed the town for more than two hours, and stormed and searched a number of houses, combing the area near the bypass road and the junction near Yitzhar settlement on the territory of the town and surrounding villages.
Israeli settlers yesterday hurled stones at Palestinian cars on the main road leading to the Burin.
Hebrew sources had announced that an Israeli settler was wounded yesterday as a result of throwing a Molotov bomb on his car.
Meanwhile, limited clashes erupted at dawn today, between the Palestinians and the Israeli occupation army in Zububa village to the west of Jenin in the northern West Bank.
Eyewitnesses reported that Israeli military vehicles stormed the village of Zububa in the early hours of the morning and started combing operations to the area adjacent to the apartheid wall built on the village’s land, where clashes erupted during which Israeli soldiers fired stun grenades and gas towards Palestinian young men and boys who responded by throwing stones and empty bottles.
Local sources explained that the village is witnessing sweeps and frequent raids and arrests carried out by the occupation forces under the pretext of “controlling the barrier and chasing Palestinian youth who carry out destructive actions.”
In another context, the Israeli occupation forces closed the military roadblock near the village of Jaba northeast of the city of Jerusalem, and prevented vehicles from crossing the barrier.
The occupation authorities have imposed hundreds of roadblocks in the West Bank and around Jerusalem.
