Israeli colonialist settlers closed, on Monday evening, the main Jenin-Nablus Road, in the northern part of the occupied West Bank, and attacked Palestinian cars.

Media sources said the colonists shut the road down, before attacking Palestinian cars and hurling stones at them, causing damage.

The attacks led to protests in the area, before Israeli soldiers arrived at the scene, and starting firing rubber-coated steel bullets and gas bombs at the Palestinians.

In related news, the soldiers placed dirty mounds on the road between Qusra and Jaloud towns, south of Nablus.
