NABLUS (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces deployed in and around the northern West Bank towns of Beita and Huwwara late Wednesday after a fire bomb was hurled at a settler car, witnesses said.
Dozens of Israeli soldiers stormed Beita and imposed a curfew on the nearby Huwwara village after a settler vehicle was attacked with a fire bomb.
Israeli soldiers fired multiple tear gas canisters and stun grenades in the town.
Locals told Ma'an that several Israeli military checkpoints were erected around Beita and soldiers inspected all Palestinian vehicles until the early hours of the morning.
All Israeli settlements in the occupied West Bank are considered illegal under international law.
