Israeli army troops stormed the West Bank city of Tulkarem on Saturday at dawn, after putting the city under siege for a week. Resistance fighters attacked the invaders.
More than 60 army vehicles invaded the city from several directions, soldiers fired live rounds and sound bombs at the residents houses, and resistance fighters clashed with the army in an attempt to stop the invasion, local sources reported.
The resistance announced that they attacked one of the jeeps by exploding a street side bomb. An army spokesperson confirmed the attack saying that the bomb damaged the jeep but caused no injuries among the soldiers.
The Israeli army has been besieging the city for one week by installing checkpoints on the main roads, closing city entrances and not allowing the residents to go in or out of the city, local sources added.
