A number of fanatic Israeli settlers attacked, on Wednesday evening, several Palestinian cars driving on the main Jenin-Tulkarem road, southwest of Jenin, in the northern part of the occupied West Bank. Soldiers invaded Ya’bad, near Jenin; many Palestinians were injured. Local sources in Jenin said several settlers of the Mabo Dontan illegitimate Israeli settlement, threw stones and empty bottles at Palestinian cars, and gathered in the middle of the street to block traffic. The attacks led to damages but no injuries.
Later on, Israeli soldiers installed roadblocks east of west of Ya’bad, stopped and searched dozens of Palestinian cars, and failed to remove or apprehend the extremist settlers.
Also on Wednesday evening, Samer Abu Bakr, head of the Ya’bad Town Council, said several armored Israeli military jeeps invaded Ya’bad, and fired rounds of live ammunition, gas bombs, concussion grenades and rubber-coated metal bullets, during clashes between the invading soldiers and local youth.
Medical sources said that dozens of residents received treatment for the effects of tear gas inhalation.
