JENIN (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces on Monday raided Jaba village in the northern West Bank, leading to clashes with locals.

Five army jeeps entered Jaba village at around noon, and young men pelted soldiers with stones and bottles as soldiers fired tear gas and rubber bullets, witnesses told Ma'an.

Soldiers ransacked several houses, including the homes of Mahmoud Awwad, Radi Fashafsha and Ziad Alawna, and took photographs of a girls' school, a mosque, a coffee shop and two houses, locals said.

An Israeli army spokesman did not immediately return calls seeking comment.

Earlier Monday, Israeli soldiers shot and injured a Palestinian in Madama village near Nablus during clashes between villagers and Israeli settlers.

Witnesses told Ma'an that settlers from the illegal Yizhar settlement entered Madama village and clashed with villagers. Israeli forces arrived after a settler was injured by a stone.

During the clashes, Amir Fayiz Nassar, 27, was shot in the foot with live fire by soldiers and taken to Rafidia hospital, witnesses said.

Soldiers also arrested three Palestinians during the incident, including Mamoon Nassar who was assaulted by settlers before being detained, locals said.

An Israeli army spokeswoman said a Palestinian man had approached Yizhar settlement and a soldier "arrived at the scene to distance the man, resulting in a physical confrontation."

"Several Palestinians gathered in the area and threw rocks at soldiers, who responded using riot dispersal means," she said.

"After the riot dispersal gear proved inefficient, the soldiers were forced to fire towards one of the rioters legs, identifying a hit," she added, noting that an Israeli civilian had been injured by a rock.

Israeli "occupation" leads to Pal "resistance," causing such Israeli Raids.
Israeli Raids lead to Pal stone throwing, causing Israelis to use tear gas and rubber bullets, leading to more Pal "resistance," and This Perpetual Cycle,
UNLESS PALESTINIANS NEGOTIATE AND COMPROMISE FURTHER.

Israel declared its only legal borders in 1948. The only compromise possible is to forgive Israel when the last invader leaves Palestine.

#1 - the Palestinians can't compromise further, unless it is to give away all the land that Israel wants - which is all the land.

Jenin belongs to UNRWA -- it is funded, run-by, the UN. It has to be protected by the UN. The UN forces were founded by Lester B. Pearson, ONLY for the purposes of peace-keeping. They are forbidden to carry arm. So, whoever chooses to 'raid Jenin' is welcome. Bloggers can fulminate all they wish -- won't help. Ban Ki Moon has to protect Jenin -- not the PLO terrorist Abbas (whose election expired in 2009).
