Israeli forces raid Al-Matar Street in Jerusalem-district village

JERUSALEM, Wednesday, March 17, 2021 (WAFA) – Israeli forces today intensified their military presence in Al-Matar Street in the town of Kafr 'Aqab, north of the occupied city of Jerusalem, according to a media source.

The Kafr 'Aqab Municipality’s media officer, Raed Hamdan, told WAFA that the forces have intensified their military presence in the area since yesterday, and posted a sign announcing the establishment of a settler-only sports complex and a park at the expense of Palestinians’ land.

Last night, a number of Palestinian civilians were injured with rubber-coated metal bullets and many others suffered from suffocation due to inhaling tear gas during clashes with the Israeli forces in the town of Kafr Aqab.

Earlier, Israeli forces demolished a warehouse, razed Palestinian-owned land and threatened to demolish commercial stores in the neighborhood, which they declared as a military zone.
