On Monday afternoon, a group of illegal Israeli colonizers, accompanied by many soldiers, invaded the archaeological site in Sebastia Palestinian town, north of Nablus, in the northern part of the occupied West Bank.

Mohammad Azem, the Mayor of Sebastia, stated that more than 100 colonizers invaded the site and toured in it under extensive military deployment.

Azem added that the soldiers closed the entire area and the streets around it to all Palestinian traffic, and prevented the Palestinians from approaching it.

It is worth mentioning that the soldiers frequently invade Sebastia to accompany groups of colonialist settlers into the archeological 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.
