The sources said that dozens of youths hurled stones and empty bottles at the invading soldiers, and placed barriers obstructing the movement of the army in the town.

The soldiers fired several gas bombs, concussion grenades, and rubber-coated metal bullets, in addition to rounds of live ammunition. No injuries have been reported.

Also on Monday evening, several extremist Israeli settlers attacked three Palestinians in Ya’bod village, south of the northern West Bank city of Jenin.

The settlers hurled stones at the Palestinians’ car nearby causing damage.

The Palestinians were on lands where the former illegal Israeli settlement of Homesh once stood before it was evicted by the Israeli army in 2005.

A month ago, Palestinian owners of the lands managed to obtain an Israeli court order allowing them to return to their lands and plant them. The settlers then decided to attack the land and install an outpost.

In related news, soldiers invaded Be’er Al-Basha village, south of Jenin, and broke into a local store.
