JENIN, (PIC)– The Israeli Occupation Forces (IOF) threatened on Sunday to impose a tight siege on Yabad town, south of Jenin, under the pretext of limiting local youths’ attacks on Israeli soldiers.
Eyewitnesses said that IOF soldiers have delivered an ultimatum to the inhabitants threatening to impose countless collective punishment measures on the local residents if the attacks continue.
Israelis claim that Yabad’s youths carry out daily attacks against the nearby Mabo Dotan settlement.
Also in Yabad, violent clashes were reported on Sunday evening when IOF violently stormed the town.
Local youths started throwing stones and empty bottles after Israeli forces closed the main entrance to the town and erected a make-shift checkpoint.
Earlier Saturday, Israeli forces had intensified their presence throughout the town after an Israeli jeep was attacked by a Molotov cocktail.
