On Thursday evening, Israeli soldiers injured a Palestinian man, 60 years of age, after assaulting him with their batons and rifles in Burqa village, northwest of Nablus, in the occupied West Bank’s northern part.

Ghassan Daghlas, a Palestinian official who monitors Israel’s illegal colonialist activities in the northern West Bank, said the soldiers invaded the western entrance of the village, leading to protests.

Daghlas added that the soldiers fired many live rounds, rubber-coated steel bullets, and gas bombs at the Palestinians.

During the invasion, the soldiers stopped Mahmoud Abu Ar-Reesh, 60, before assaulting him with batons and rifles.

Mahmoud suffered several lacerations and bruises before Palestinian medics rushed him to a hospital in Nablus.

In related news, undercover Israeli soldiers driving a car with Palestinian license plates infiltrated Tulkarem, in the northwestern West Bank, before kidnapping a former political prisoner, Safi Emad Salama, 35, from a restaurant where he works.
