NABLUS, Monday, March 15, 2021 (WAFA) – Clashes broke out today between Israeli occupation forces and Palestinians in the village of Beit Dajan, east of the northern West Bank city of Nablus, while Israeli settlers tore down fences in the village of Qaryout, south of Nablus, according to local sources.

Sources said Israeli soldiers stormed the village of Beit Dajan and held a number of youths at the eastern part of the village provoking confrontations with the residents who rushed to help the youths.

The soldiers fired live ammunition and teargas canisters at the residents. However, no injuries were reported.

Meanwhile, a group of Israeli settlers destroyed fences surrounding several plots of farmland in the village of Qaryout, to the south of Nablus, in an effort to prevent Palestinians from protecting their lands.

Sources said the settlers from the illegal settlement of Shavot Rahel, raided the Palestinian land and sabotaged the fences the Palestinian landowners had set up on their lands near the settlement to protect them from being taken over by the settlers who regularly steal Palestinian lands to expand their illegal settlements.
