RAMALLAH/GAZA, Saturday, October 1, 2022 (WAFA) – Israeli soldiers raided and seized money, clashed with residents and made arrests in the West Bank while in Gaza, the Israeli navy attacked fishermen’s boats with shells and machine gunfire, according to various sources.
Soldiers raided Jalazon refugee camp, north of Ramallah, early this morning, broke into homes and seized a large sum of money, according to Palestinian security sources.
Residents clashed with the invading soldiers, who fired rubber-coated metal bullets and tear gas at the Palestinians causing one injury by a rubber bullet, who was admitted to hospital and reported in stable condition.
Confrontations were also reported near the village of Arraba, south of the northern West Bank city of Jenin, said local sources, after the army had set up a checkpoint today near the town and stopped and checked papers of Palestinians on the road. There were no reports of injuries in the confrontations despite the soldiers firing tear gas and sound bombs at the Palestinians.
At the same time, soldiers this morning blocked an access road to Jenin city and prevented people from using that road, forcing them to look for alternative routes to move around.
Similarly, soldiers this morning set up a checkpoint at the entrance to the village of Deir Abu Mishaal, northwest of Ramallah, stopped vehicles and checked papers causing serious traffic jams and a long line of cars waiting to leave or enter the village.
Meanwhile, soldiers today detained Palestinians in the south of the West Bank after raiding their homes, three from various areas of the city of Hebron, and four others, including a 13-yar-old child detained in Aida refugee camp in Bethlehem, according to Palestinian security sources.
In the Israeli-besieged Gaza Strip, Israeli navy ships today fired shells and machine gunfire at Palestinian fishermen’s boats sailing in the northern coast of the Strip, reported WAFA correspondent.
He said the navy fired several shells and shot several rounds of machine gunfire and tear gas at the fishermen forcing them to return to shore without any reports of injuries.
Israel, as part of its 16-year-old air, sea and land blockade on the Gaza Strip, allows fishermen to sail for only three nautical miles in the northern coast and six in the southern coast.
