On Wednesday, many Israeli colonialist settlers, accompanied by soldiers, invaded the archeological site in Sebastia Palestinian town, north of the northern West Bank city of Nablus.
Sebastia Mayor, Mohammad Azem, said the soldiers closed many roads leading to the site and prevented the Palestinians from approaching it.
Azem added that the soldiers also invaded many Palestinian homes, and occupied their rooftops to use them as monitoring posts before several army jeeps accompanied the colonists’ cars and buses into the village and headed to the site.
It is worth mentioning that, nearly four months ago, the colonists set a schedule to visit the site every Wednesday, under heaving military presence.
During these invasions, the soldiers block all Palestinian traffic, in addition to frequently storming homes, abducting Palestinians, and attacking protesters, in addition to removing the Palestinian flag from the site.
Earlier Wednesday, the soldiers abducted a Palestinian man from his home in Hebron city, in the southern part of the occupied West Bank.
On Wednesday at dawn, the soldiers abducted, two former political prisoners from their homes near Bethlehem, south of the occupied Palestinian capital, Jerusalem, in the West Bank.
On Tuesday night, the soldiers abducted eight Palestinians, including one medic and four children, and assaulted many others in Bab al-‘Amoud and surrounding areas, in the occupied Palestinian capital, Jerusalem.
On Tuesday evening, the soldiers injured many Palestinians in Ramallah and Bethlehem, in the occupied West Bank, and abducted a young man, while illegal colonialist settlers torched three Palestinian cars, and caused damage to several other vehicles, near Beit Iksa village, northwest of Jerusalem.
In the Gaza Strip, the Israeli navy ships attacked, on Tuesday at night, a small Palestinian fishing boat near the al-Waha shore, west of Beit Lahia, in northern Gaza, wounding a fisherman, and fired live rounds, on Wednesday morning, at farmers near Khan Younis, in the southern part of the coastal region.
