On Monday at dawn, residents of Deir Nitham village, north of the West Bank city of Ramallah, managed to prevent dozens of fanatic Israeli settlers from invading their village, after the settlers caused damage to several Palestinian cars. Local sources said Israeli soldiers were deployed close to the settlers, but did not even attempt to stop them.
The settlers, who came from Halmish illegal settlement, hurled stones at several Palestinian cars, causing excessive damage.
Clashes took place between the invading settlers and local youth who threw stones and empty bottles at them, while the army fired gas bombs, rubber-coated metal bullets, and rounds of live ammunition. The settlers also fired rounds of live ammunition at the residents.
The attack against the village came just one day after fanatic Israeli settlers tried to invade Nabi Saleh nearby village, but were met by local youth who clashed with them; several Palestinians were injured, and the invading settlers fled the area.
Also in Ramallah, dozens of soldiers invaded Hizma village, and clashed with dozens of local youth. The soldiers fired dozens of concussion grenades, gas bombs, rounds of live ammunition and rubber-coated metal bullets.
