Most of the Palestinians who suffered the effects of tear gas inhalation are children, including infants, who were injured while in their homes due to the intensity of the Israeli fire.

The Israeli invasions targeted many areas in Nablus, including the main invasion into Joseph’s Tomb area, Amman Street, Balata refugee camp and many surrounding communities.

Israeli Soldiers Injure Many Palestinians In Nablus
Published on: Aug 17, 2022 at 23:13

On Wednesday evening, Israeli soldiers injured many Palestinians east of Nablus, in the northern part of the occupied West Bank.

Media sources said dozens of soldiers in many armored vehicles and troop carriers accompanied several buses transporting illegal colonizers into Joseph’s Tomb area in the eastern part of the city, leading to protests.

They added that the army fired many live rounds, rubber-coated steel bullets, and gas bombs, causing dozens of Palestinians to suffer the effects of tear gas inhalation.

The invasions and protests mainly took place in the Amman Street area near Askar and Balata refugee camps.

It is worth mentioning that the army frequently invades the eastern area of Nablus to accompany the colonists into the historic site, an issue that leads to protests, in addition to the ongoing invasions of homes and the abduction of many Palestinians.

Joseph the patriarch is revered by Jews, Muslims, Christians, and Samaritans alike, however, the Israeli military allows Jews to visit as part of organized pilgrimages, despite the site being in Area A where the PA has full control and prohibits Muslims from worshiping at the site.

Ultra-orthodox and nationalist Jews regularly try to visit the shrine without approval, as many Jews believe the tomb to be the final resting place of the biblical figure in the Old Testament.

Palestinians believe that Joseph’s Tomb is the funerary monument to Sheikh Yousif Dweikat, a local religious figure.

In the early morning hours on Wednesday, Israeli forces conducted their daily raids of West Bank towns and villages, aimed in part at keeping the Palestinians living under the Israeli military occupation in a state of terror and uncertainty.

Local sources reported that in Ya’bad, south of Jenin, Palestinian youth who emerged from their homes to defend their village from the invading army by throwing stones were met by an onslaught of tear gas, which entered the windows of homes where families were sleeping and caused dozens of people to require treatment for tear gas inhalation. The invading Israeli soldiers also fired sound grenades, provoking terror among the families in the neighborhood.

Israeli forces abducted 11 Palestinians from the town of Ya’bad, southwest of Jenin in the northern West Bank. They have been identified as Majd Abdel Rahman Ba’jawi, Muhammad Issa Ba’jawi, Amir Kamel Atatreh, Ali Ba’jawi, Hadi Bilal Zaid al-Kilani, Naseem Muhammad Saeed Qabha, Nassim Muhannad Amarneh, Muhammad Maher Abu Bakr and Nizar Hamrasha, Ahmed Ezz El-Din Amarneh, and Jaafar Youssef Abadi.

The Israeli army also carried out a campaign of home abductions in the town of Tuqu’, east of Bethlehem, abducting 22 Palestinians. The abducted Palestinians were identified as: two brothers Suleiman Khaled al-Amour (25 years) and Ahmad (23 years old), Sufian Odallah al-Amour (25 years), two brothers Mohammad Imad al-Amour (29 years) and Khalil (26 years), and Baraa Raed al-Amour (25 years), and the two brothers Anas Adel Al-Amour (30 years), Mohammad (31 years), Mahmoud Ali Al-Amour (24 years), Mahmoud Deeb Al-Amour (19 years), Moamen Ratib Al-Amour (21 years), Talal Issa Al-Amour (47 years), and his son Sanad (18 years), Mohammad Riyad Al-Amour (21 years), brothers Baha Khaled Al-Badan (24 years) and Hussein (22 years), Khalil Daoud Abu Mufreh (30 years), Wajdi Samer Al-Badan (17 years), Riyad Imad Al-Badan (22 years), and Ibrahim Fouad Al-Sabah (25 years), Mohammad Suleiman Al-Shaer (23 years), and Musa Muhammad Al-Amour (22 years).

Israeli forces conduct pre-dawn raids throughout the West Bank on a daily basis, in direct violation of international law and Israel’s obligations as an occupying military force under the Fourth Geneva Convention.

Israeli military forces have occupied the West Bank, Gaza Strip, the city of Jerusalem and the Golan Heights since 1967 and forced the indigenous population of these areas to live under martial law since that time. This is the longest-standing military occupation on earth, and is in direct violation of international law.

Israel Forces Two Families To Demolish Their Homes In Occupied Jerusalem

On Wednesday, the Israeli occupation authorities forced two Palestinian families to demolish their homes in occupied Jerusalem, in the West Bank.

Media sources said members of the Shweiki family in the ath-Thoury neighborhood in Silwan, south of the Al-Aqsa Mosque, were forced to demolish their home despite appeals, and fines imposed on the family.

The Israeli army also forced Mahmoud Abu Rayya to demolish sections of his home in the Sharafat neighborhood of Jerusalem, just as he obtained a ruling delaying the demolition for three months until he concludes his appeals.

Israeli’s policy of home demolitions, including self-demolition, is an illegal act of collective punishment that violated International Law.

While Israel continues to build and expand its illegal colonies, Palestinian communities and towns, in occupied Jerusalem, and various areas in the occupied West Bank, continue to be denied the right to build homes and property.

Israel has been issuing dozens of demolition orders against existing Palestinian homes and property, including under-construction structures, and has already demolished many of them.
