On Sunday night, illegal Israeli colonizers attacked many Palestinian cars near the western entrance of Beitin village, northeast of Ramallah, and in Hares village, west of Salfit, in the occupied West Bank’s central part.

Media sources said dozens of colonizers, accompanied by soldiers, hurled stones at the Palestinian cars near the main entrance of Beitin, causing damage to several cars.

They added that the colonizers also tried to invade the village, leading to protests before the soldiers fired many live rounds, rubber-coated steel bullets, and gas bombs at them.

West of Salfit, the colonizers gathered at the main entrance of Hares village, and hurled stones at Palestinian cars, causing damage.

Tayseer Kleib, a Palestinian from Hares, said the colonizers pelted his car with stones as he was driving with his children.

The locals protested the attacks and tried to force the colonizers away before Israeli soldiers invaded Hares and fired gas bombs and concussion grenades at the residents, causing many to suffer the effects of tear gas inhalation.

In related news, the colonizers obstructed traffic on the main Qalqilia-Nablus Road in the northern West Bank and carried posters while chanting anti-Palestinian slogans.
