Welcome to Palestine Today, a service of the International Middle East Media Center, www.imemc.org, for Tuesday June 24th, 2014.
Four civilians injured by Israeli settlers and army attacks meanwhile Israeli troops steal money as they search homes in the West Bank. These stories, and more, coming up, stay tuned.
Two Palestinians were injured on Tuesday when Israeli soldiers invaded the southern West Bank district of Bethlehem.
Troops searched and ransacked homes in different part of the city and nearby village before kidnapping three men.
Furthermore, soldiers invaded Arraba town, south of the northern west Bank city of Jenin, kidnapped one Palestinian, and stole large sums of cash.
According to local sources dozens of soldiers invaded the town, and broke into the home of Mustafa Sheebany, before kidnapping his brother Najeeb. The soldiers violently searched the property, causing excessive property damage, and stole 5,000 NIS.
Moreover Israeli soldiers invaded various Palestinian communities, in the northern West Bank district of Nablus, detained dozens of Palestinians, and kidnapped two.
Elsewhere in the West Bank, two Palestinians were wounded after a number of settlers chased their car, and threw a gas bomb at it, near the central West Bank city of Ramallah.
Local sources said the attack took place near Deir Bzei’ village, west of Ramallah. The settlers came from a nearby illegal Israeli settlement.
The sources said that a settler’s car chased a Palestinian car on a joint road, used by Israeli settlers, and also leads to a number of Palestinian villages and towns, west of Ramallah, before a settler threw a gas bomb at the car.
Medical sources said the bomb appears to contain ingredients that target the nervous system, causing symptoms similar to paralysis.
Barely able to move and speak, the two wounded Palestinians told Israeli soldiers, at a nearby roadblock, that the settlers have attacked them, and even identified the vehicle, as it was parked nearby the roadblock. The soldiers did not listen to the complaining Palestinians, and pushed them away after threatening to kidnap them.
In other news, Israeli soldiers invaded, on Tuesday, Barta’a Palestinian village, south of the northern West Bank city of Jenin, and handed military orders for the destruction of more than ten stores.
Local sources announced that dozens of soldiers, and members of the Civil Administration Office, run by the military in the occupied territories, invaded the Industrial Area in the village, and handed the orders. Soldiers also conducted searches of various homes and property in the village, causing damage.
