Settlers attack Palestinian citizens and cars eastern Qalqilya

NABLUS, (PIC)– Jewish settlers attacked vehicles of Palestinian citizens on the Nablus – Qalqilya road, near the settlement of Qadumim built on the lands of Kafr Qaddum village eastern Qalqilya, in the northern West Bank.

Informed local sources and eyewitnesses confirmed to PIC that groups of settlers from the Qadumim settlement and the adjacent settlements attacked the passing vehicles and broke windows of some cars.

Meanwhile, settlers from the outpost of Havad Gilad set up on the lands of Sarra village, western of Nablus, have also attacked and vandalized Palestinians vehicles.

These settlers’ attacks came after the Palestinian marches organized in various towns and villages in the West Bank, including the town of Kafr Qaddum, in rejection of the continued Israeli settlement policies.

RAMALLAH, (PIC)– Israeli occupation forces (IOF) detained three minors in Hares village, north of Salfit, on Saturday and installed roadblocks at various West Bank areas.

IOA reduces area of fishing in violation of calm agreement

GAZA, (PIC)– Hamas movement lashed out at the Israeli occupation authorities for reducing the area of fishing off the coast of Gaza Strip to three nautical miles.

Dr. Sami Abu Zuhri, a Hamas spokesman, urged the Egyptian leadership to assume its responsibility vis-à-vis that violation in its capacity as the patron of the calm agreement.

Abu Zuhri held the IOA fully responsible for that decision and its repercussions after the calm agreement had allowed fisherman in Gaza to fish in an area of six nautical miles off the coasts of the enclave.

The IOA decided to reduce the area of fishing and to close Karm Abu Salem commercial crossing in response to the alleged firing of two local rockets from Gaza into 1948 occupied Palestinian land.
