The Israeli occupation forces (IOF) on Monday evening threatened to take punitive measures against the residents of Hizma town, northeast of Jerusalem, on allegations that local youths continued to throw stones at settlers’ cars.
According to local sources, the IOF stormed the town, fired stun grenades and intercepted cars and passersby.
Israeli soldiers also circulated notices containing threats to take punitive measures against the residents if stone-throwing attacks on Israeli cars did not stop.
Later, the IOF closed the main entrance to the town and prevented Palestinian cars and citizens from leaving or entering through it.
