NABLUS, (PIC)– Hundreds of Israeli occupation forces (IOF) attacked Qasra village, south of Nablus, afternoon Monday under heavy gunfire wounding 15 Palestinians.
Eyewitnesses told the PIC reporter that the citizens were either directly hit with rubber-coated bullets or suffered injuries from shrapnel while dozens were treated for breathing difficulty.
They said that the soldiers, in tens of armored vehicles, stormed the village from its southern entrance under heavy firing of bullets and teargas canisters.
They said that the soldiers, who were confronted by dozens of young men throwing stones and empty bottles, managed to advance into the town’s center as citizens asked inhabitants via loudspeakers in mosques to go out and confront the invading troops.
The eyewitnesses said that the IOF attack coincided with the entry of dozens of Jewish settlers into the town’s cultivated land and occupied nearby mountain peaks.
They said that the settlers triggered the confrontations after they destroyed 50 olive saplings and two hothouses owned by four citizens in the village.
Qasra village is surrounded by three settlements that were established on eastern and southwestern areas of the village.
