Illegal Israeli colonists stormed, on Thursday, a Palestinian-owned home and a car-wash/workshop at the entrance to Burqa village, northwest of Nablus city in the northern occupied West Bank, local sources reported.

Palestinian official monitoring Israeli settlement activities in Nablus, Ghassan Daghlas, told the Palestinian News & Information Agency (WAFA) that Israeli settlers stormed the home of a local civilian, identified as Jamal Saif, before several Palestinians in the area gathered to confront them, forcing them to retreat.

Meanwhile, settlers, under the full protection of the occupation army threw rocks at Palestinian homes on the outskirts of Silat ad-Dhahr village, near the illegal Homesh colony which was evacuated in 2005, located north of Burqa.

Furthermore, settlers blocked part of the Nablus-Jenin road (Route 60), denying access to Palestinians traveling on the route.

One-hundred-twenty-five Palestinian civilians sustained injuries Thursday, during confrontations with the Israeli occupation forces, when hundreds of illegal Israeli settlers attempted to invade and attack the village.

Forty-two Palestinian civilians, including a journalist, were injured after being hit with rubber-coated steel rounds, while another eighty-three sustained inhalation injuries due to teargas fired by the army.
