On Wednesday night, Israeli soldiers and colonizers attacked Palestinians, their homes, and their cars, before, causing many injuries and resulting in the burning of a Palestinian home in the Batn Al-Hawa neighborhood in Silwan town, south of the Al-Aqsa Mosque in occupied Jerusalem.

Zoheir Rajabi, the head of the Batn Al-Hawa Committee in Silwan, told Wadi Hilweh Information Center In Silwan (Silwanic) that dozens of colonizers stormed many neighborhoods in the town before Israeli soldiers invaded the area and started interrogating the Palestinians in front of their homes and demanding to see their ID cards.

Rajabi added that many colonizers then went to the roof of a synagogue in an illegal outpost in the neighborhood and started throwing stones at the Palestinians, their homes, and their cars, causing damage.

He said that the Israeli soldiers then started firing a barrage of gas bombs at the Palestinian homes, causing many residents to suffer the effects of tear gas inhalation, and abducted at least one Palestinian.

Palestinian medic Nidal Hijazi told Silwanic that the medics and firefighters managed to evacuate a mother and her son from their burnt home after Israeli soldiers targeted it with gas bombs and concussion grenades.

Hijazi added that the medics also treated thirteen Palestinians and said that some were shot with rubber-coated steel bullets, and others suffered the severe effects of tear gas inhalation.

The attacks led to massive protests in Silwan before the soldiers fired many live rounds, rubber-coated steel bullets, gas bombs, and concussion grenades at the protests and the surrounding homes.

In related news, Israeli colonizers bulldozed and uprooted large areas of Palestinian towns in the Deeriyya area in Kafr Ed-Deek town, west of Salfit in the central West bank.
