Newspapers Review: Israeli army escalation in the occupied territories and shootings highlight of dailies

RAMALLAH, Monday, October 3, 2022 (WAFA) – The daily Israeli army escalation in the occupied territories through incursions, arrests and killings, and Palestinian retaliation by opening fire at soldiers and settlers were highlighted on the front page of the three Palestinian Arabic dailies published today.

Al-Quds and al-Ayyam dailies said in the headline of their main front-page story that a settler and a soldier were injured in two separate attacks near Nablus, with al-Ayyam adding that the occupation forces swept the area and closed roads.

The two papers added that Israel is concerned the attacks may reach its territories.

The third daily, al-Hayat al-Jadida, said the occupation forces and settlers attacked medical crews and residents of Beit Furik village near Nablus.

This was reported as well in al-Quds and al-Ayyam, which said that many were injured in attacks by settlers in the Nablus area, and by soldiers in Abu Dis, east of Jerusalem, as Israel issued eight demolition orders for homes in Masafer Yatta.

Al-Quds said that Israeli reports confirmed that the army is not ready logistically to deploy more forces in the West Bank, while al-Ayyam said, quoting the same reports, that the army is not ready to continue with its arrest operations in the West Bank.

Al-Ayyam said Jenin refugee camp is bracing itself to confront “the deep incursion.”

Al-Hayat al-Jadida, in a report about the Palestinian prisoners in Israel, said tension was high in Ramon prison and family visits were canceled today in three prisons.

Al-Quds said a young woman was arrested during a visit to her brother in Ramon prison on allegation of stabbing a prison guard.

The paper, along with al-Hayat al-Jadida, highlighted remarks by Prime Minister Mohammad Shtayyeh in which he said: “We want to invest in the person to make Palestine a landmark in the world of technology.”

The three dailies also reported on the stampede in Indonesia at a football game that left 125 people dead, as well as the protests in Iran against the killing of a woman by police.
