On Friday, illegal paramilitary colonizers shot a Palestinian woman, assaulted a citizen, and burned citizens’ lands in the northern West Bank governorate of Nablus.

Illegal Israeli colonizers attacked Palestinian citizens and their property, on Friday, in the northern West Bank governorate of Nablus, injuring two and damaging agricultural crops.

Media sources said that on Friday afternoon, armed paramilitary colonizers opened fire with live ammunition towards Palestinian citizens, and assaulted one in the village of Madama, south of Nablus city.

Sources said that colonizers shot a female citizen who sustained a shrapnel wound from a live round, and assaulted another citizen in the village.

Meanwhile, another group of Israeli colonizers set fire to Palestinian citizens’ lands in the town of Beit Furik, southeast of Nablus.

Media sources said that a group of settlers from the illegal “Itamar” settlement, built on Palestinian lands west of the town, set fire to citizens’ lands in the western part of Beit Furik.

It is important to mention that Israeli settler attacks have escalated significantly in the occupied West Bank, especially since the beginning of the Israeli military’s ongoing genocide against the Gaza Strip on October 7, 2023.

Article 49 of the Fourth Geneva Convention states;

The Occupying Power [ISRAEL] shall not deport or transfer parts of its own civilian population into the territory it occupies [PALESTINE].
