Jerusalem24 – Israeli settlers, today Monday, threw stones at Palestinian houses in the village of Qusra, to the South of the West Bank city of Nablus.

Ghassan Daghlas, who monitors Israeli colonial settlement activities in the northern West Bank, stated that a number of settlers attacked houses in the southern area of the village, however, locals managed to fend off their attack.

He said that clashes erupted after Israeli soldiers raided the area amid the heavy firing of live bullets and tear gas canisters. No casualties were reported.

Meanwhile, Israeli forces detained 11 Palestinians from several areas and villages in the district of Nablus as settlers intensified their attacks, raiding citizens’ lands and setting them on fire.

The soldiers also intensified their measures on the Za’tara junction checkpoint south of Nablus, causing heavy traffic congestion.

Israeli forces last night shut down roads surrounding Nablus, leaving hundreds of Palestinians stranding on roads. This came after three settlers were reportedly injured in a drive-by shooting incident last night on the aforementioned junction.
