Israeli forces injure more than 40 Palestinians in Nablus raid

Israeli forces stormed a refugee camp on the outskirts of the West Bank city of Nablus on Tuesday, injuring more than 40 Palestinians, Palestinian media reported. 

Some 46 Palestinians were treated for wounds during the raid on the Askar refugee camp which took place in the predawn hours of Tuesday morning, Ahmad Jibril, the head of the Emergency and Ambulance Department at the Palestinian Red Crescent Society, said.

The report added that 44 of the injured Palestinians suffered tear gas inhalation.

Palestinian security sources said a large unit of Israeli forces broke into the family house of Hasan Qatanani and mapped it out before a planned demolition.

Palestinian youth Qatanani was killed by Israeli forces earlier this month. The regime’s army claimed that he was responsible for the April shooting attack in the Jordan Valley which killed three settlers.

During the raid, the sources said, the Israeli soldiers also broke into several other houses and measured the home of the slain Palestinian Hussam Saleem.

He had allegedly planned and directed a shooting attack by the Nablus-based Palestinian resistance group Lions’ Den that killed an Israeli soldier in the northern West Bank last October.

The regime razes Palestinian homes to punish the family of those who allegedly carried out operations against Israeli forces.

The United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA) calls the practice “collective punishment” of Palestinians. The UN agency deems the practice “illegal under international law.”

Clashes erupt after Israeli raid on refugee camp

Additionally, on Tuesday, the occupation forces raided the Nur Shams refugee camp, near the West Bank city of Tulkarm, sparking clashes with Palestinian resistance fighters.

The raid was conducted for making preparation to demolish the home of a Hamas resistance fighter who was allegedly behind a shooting attack in February in the town of Huwara, south of Nablus.

The Israeli military said one of its soldiers was moderately hurt by shrapnel after an explosive device was detonated.

Tensions have been running high in the occupied West Bank over the past year, with the Israeli military conducting violent raids under the pretext of detaining what it calls “wanted” Palestinians.

As a result of these attacks, at least 112 Palestinians have lost their lives and many others have been arrested.
