Israeli Settlers' Rampage in Nablus Leaves Palestinians Injured: Report

TEHRAN (Tasnim) – Israeli settlers' aggressive rampage in the village of Duma, south of Nablus, resulted in several Palestinians sustaining injuries and multiple homes set ablaze, according to recent reports.

The incident resulted in several Palestinians sustaining injuries, and numerous homes were set ablaze by Israeli settlers participating in the offensive in the village.

According to Suleiman Dawabsha, the head of Duma village council, Palestinians were shot with live ammunition while attempting to defend themselves against the settlers' attacks. Moreover, Israeli settlers have closed the entrances to the towns of Silwad, Turmus Aya, Sinjil, and Deir Dibwan since Saturday morning, east of Ramallah governorate, targeting passing vehicles.

Since October 7, Israeli army raids throughout the occupied West Bank have become a frequent occurrence even during daylight hours. The Israeli regime’s authorities have implemented this strategy deliberately, claiming to target combatants, yet an increasing number of Palestinian civilians are being arrested, and violence within these areas is on the rise.

In a related development, Israeli media reported that hundreds of volunteers have joined police forces and the Israeli army in the search for a 14-year-old Israeli boy who went missing on Friday. However, these search operations have heightened tensions in the occupied West Bank, leading to clashes.

Dozens of Israeli settlers stormed the village of al-Mughayyir near Ramallah, resulting in the death of one 25-year-old Palestinian and injuring 25 others. Earlier this morning, violence erupted in the area, with five Palestinians wounded by settlers, according to the Wafa news agency.

Additionally, the Israeli army obstructed the road to the village, preventing the victim's family from holding a funeral.

The Israeli violence in the occupied West Bank has escalated following the disappearance of the teenage Israeli settler on Friday. Near Ein Siniya village in Ramallah, Abed Abu Awwad recounted an incident where settlers blocked a road and hurled stones at his car, shattering a window. He expressed feeling deeply unsettled by the presence of firearms among the settlers, emphasizing a lack of security and safety in the West Bank.

Settler attacks in the occupied West Bank have surged over the past day. Reporting from occupied East Jerusalem al-Quds, Al Jazeera's Imran Khan highlighted calls for direct action against Palestinians on settler noticeboards and WhatsApp groups. Khan warned that such actions could potentially incite further unrest in the West Bank, surpassing levels seen in recent history.
