Israeli Soldiers Shoot 25 Palestinians In Nablus

On Tuesday, Israeli soldiers shot 25 Palestinians and caused at least twenty to suffer the effects of tear gas inhalation while withdrawing from Rojeeb village, east of the northern West Bank city of Nablus.

Media sources said dozens of soldiers surrounded a house owned by members of the Sawalhi family in the western part of Rojeeb and fired many shells at it before forcing the father of one of the Palestinians to use a loudspeaker the army gave him to ask his son and another Palestinians to surrender.

The army invaded the village to abduct two resistance fighters, Nabil Eyad Sawalhi and Nihad Oweiss, and informed their families that they would start demolishing the house they were held up in if they did not surrender.

Hours into the invasion, the two Palestinians surrendered to avoid getting killed, and to prevent the military from widening its offensive an issue that could mean serious damage to many homes in the area and numerous casualties.

The army then started withdrawing from Rojeeb amidst massive protests and fired a barrage of live rounds, rubber-coated steel bullets, gas bombs, and concussion grenades.

Ahmad Jibreel, the head of the Nablus office of the Palestinian Red Crescent Society (PRCS), said four Palestinians were shot with live rounds, at least one seriously, three suffered shrapnel wounds, and one was shot with a gas bomb in the chest before they were rushed to Rafidia hospital.

Jibreel added that thirteen Palestinians suffered shrapnel wounds from live fire, five were shot with rubber-coated steel bullets, four fell and were injured while the soldiers chased them, and at least twenty suffered the effects of tear gas inhalation and received treatment at the scene without the need for hospitalization.

The soldiers also attacked Palestinian ambulances and prevented the medics from reaching wounded Palestinians, especially in the besieged house, for at least three hours.

Jibril condemned the Israeli escalation and said the soldiers not only endangered the lives of civilians in the area, but also used medics as human shields, and prevented them from performing their life-saving duties.

The soldiers also fired live rounds at a Palestinian Medical Relief ambulance, causing damage, and used their armored bulldozers to destroy cars and other property.

Two Colonizers Injured In Nablus

Israeli sources have reported that two colonizers were injured early Tuesday after Palestinian fighters opened fire at their car in Nablus city, in the northern part of the occupied West Bank.

The sources said the colonizers were part of a group that was not authorized to enter Nablus but went there anyway to visit Joseph’s Tomb, east of Nablus city, before they came under fire by Palestinian fighters.

They added that the colonizers’ vehicle crashed and burnt before Israeli soldiers invaded Nablus and extracted them.

The two wounded colonizers were transferred to an Israeli hospital for treatment.

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.
