Israeli forces stormed the city in large numbers after closing all the entrances leading to it and neighboring checkpoints, preventing people’s movement in both directions. Eyewitnesses told the PIC reporter that the clashes broke out when several Israeli military vehicles broke into Kafer Qalil town southeast of the city.
At least five arrests were reported during the clashes. Another young man was detained at a military checkpoint erected between Nablus and Tulkarem.
All the detainees were taken to unknown detention centers. Similar clashes erupted in Zabouba town west of Jenin where tension is still simmering for more than two weeks. Local sources affirmed to the PIC reporter that the clashes broke out when Israeli forces stormed the town amid heavy firing of teargas bombs.
Several locals suffered from teargas inhalation due to the excessive firing of teargas bombs between the houses.
