Palestinians confront zionist settlers guarded by israeli forces in Huwara town
Violent clashes broke out on Thursday evening between Palestinian citizens and Jewish settlers escorted by zionist regime soldiers in Huwara town, south of Nablus city. Local sources told the Palestinian Information Center (PIC) that dozens of settlers stormed and closed the main street of Huwara town under military protection at the pretext of protesting stone-throwing attacks on Israeli vehicles.
The presence of zionist settlers and soldiers in the town provoked dozens of residents to rally on a road near the intersection of Einabous village, carrying Palestinian flags. Soon later, the situation developed into clashes between the two sides.
According the sources, the zionist regime soldiers fired tear gas to disperse the Palestinian protestors and arrested a young man named Asem al-Hawwari during the events. In recent weeks, settlers from the illegal settlement of Yitzhar have escalated their attacks and provocative acts against the Palestinians in Huwara town and nearby areas.
