Resistance fighters attack Israeli army post east of Qalqilya
Anonymous Gunmen, believed to be from the Palestinian resistance, on Saturday night opened fire at an Israeli military watchtower in an area near Azzun town, east of Qalqilya city in the occupied West Bank.
Local sources told the Palestinian Information Center (PIC) that the Israeli occupation army intensified the presence of its forces around the besieged town of Azzun following the gunfire attack on a watchtower in al-Mendar area.
The sources affirmed that the Israeli army tightened its measure at the checkpoints it had established over one week ago on all roads leading to the town and launched dawn raids on Palestinian homes.
They said that local citizens were brutalized by Israeli soldiers during violent raids at dawn Sunday on several homes in Azzun town.
The presence of many illegal settlements and outposts in the area has become a source of constant tension and suffering for the local population, while the Israeli army persists in taking mass punitive measures against them following any stone-throwing or Molotov cocktail attack on soldiers or settlers.
