Friday 1-March-2024


Palestinian resistance fighters confronted at dawn Friday Israeli occupation forces’ (IOF) raids across the West Bank. Cases of arrest, injury and sabotage were reported.

In Occupied Jerusalem, Israeli police opened fire at a Palestinian vehicle as it passed by the entrance to Qalandia refugee camp, north of Occupied Jerusalem, wounding its driver, and preventing ambulance crews from reaching or treating the injured man.

Local sources explained that Israeli forces stormed Qalandiya camp and were deployed across its neighborhoods and streets, while snipers took their positions in some buildings, amid confrontations that broke out between Israeli forces and Palestinian young men.

Reportedly, Israeli troops raided a number of homes and shops, including the family home of martyr Muhammad Manasra, who carried out the shooting attack last evening near Eli settlement on Ramallah-Nablus Road, which led to the killing of two settlers and the martyrdom of the resistance fighter.

The forces arrested the martyr’s father and brother and took measurements of the house in preparation for its demolition later on.

Meanwhile, Israeli forces stormed the town of Hizma, northeast of Jerusalem, and fired flare bombs into the sky of the town.

In Jenin, the IOF stormed the town of Silat al-Harithiya, west of Jenin, and the town of Jaba to the south, leading to armed clashes that erupted between soldiers and resistance fighters. Israeli soldiers raided a printing shop in Jaba, destroyed its contents, and confiscated some devices and equipment from it.

In Jericho, the IOF stormed Aqabat Jabr camp with several military vehicles, and broke into the house of Hamza Al-Ajouri, searched the house and sabotaged its contents before arresting Al-Ajouri and two of his sons after assaulting them. His third son has been detained in Israeli jails for nearly two months.

The city of Salfit was also invaded by Israeli military vehicles and soldiers who roamed the streets of the city with no arrests reported.

Meanwhile, Jewish settlers attacked citizens’ homes in the town of Jalud, southeast of Nablus. They threw stones at Palestinian homes, causing damage to some houses.

Last night, settlers reportedly demolished an agricultural room in Khirbet Sarra, in the town of Qaryut, southeast of Nablus.

Groups of Jewish settlers were also stationed on the road between the towns of Urif and Asira al-Qibliya, south of Nablus, throwing stones at citizens’ vehicles, causing damage to several vehicles including an ambulance.
