NABLUS (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces on Tuesday raided Burqa village northwest of Nablus firing tear gas and stun grenades.
A Palestinian official who monitors settler activity in the northern West Bank told Ma’an that Israeli forces raided the village, assaulted a number of people, and fired dozens of tear-gas canisters under the pretext that a firebomb was thrown at an Israeli military jeep at the village’s junction.
Ghassan Daghlas added that Palestinians responded by throwing stones, and clashes broke out.
An Israeli army spokeswoman confirmed the clashes erupted after firebombs were hurled at an Israeli vehicle.
