On Monday, dozens of illegal Israeli colonizers and soldiers invaded the archaeological area in Sebastia Palestinian town, northwest of Nablus city, in the northern part of the occupied West Bank.

The Mayor of Sebastia, Mohammad Azem, said the soldiers invaded the town and closed many roads to allow the colonizers’ buses into the site.

Azem added that the soldiers isolated the entire area near the archeological site to prevent the Palestinians from entering it.

The soldiers frequently invade Sebastia to accompany colonialist settlers into the archaeological area.

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.

In related news, the soldiers abducted a Palestinian man in Bethlehem governorate in the occupied West Bank.

In addition, a group of illegal Israeli colonizers attacked many Palestinian cars on the main Jenin-Nablus Road in the northern part of the occupied West Bank, causing damage.

On Monday at dawn, Israeli soldiers abducted five Palestinians during invasions and violent searches of homes in Jenin, Nablus, and Qalqilia, in the northern parts of the occupied West Bank.
