Israeli army deploys more troops in the occupied West Bank


Israeli army deploys more troops in the occupied West Bank

Ramallah, Feb 27 (Prensa Latina) The Israeli army increased its presence in the West Bank after the assault by numerous Jewish settlers on a Palestinian town that caused over a hundred injuries and significant material damage.

The Israeli news website Walla reported that the IDF deployed another three battalions and four additional companies, as well as special forces in the West Bank, amid increased violence.

The troops are also tasked with searching for a Palestinian attacker who killed two Israelis yesterday, which settlers used as a pretext to storm the village of Huwara.

The Al Quds news website reported that the military locked down the northern governorate of Nablus, which includes Huwara, by preventing the movement of people and goods.

According to Ghassan Daghlas, a Palestinian official who monitors Israeli settlement activities in the Nablus district, at least 15 vehicles and 30 houses were set on fire by settlers.

In total, the extremists rampaged across Huwara and neighboring towns such as Burin and Asira al-Qabaliyya, also located south of the city of Nablus, he stressed.

“These acts of terrorism are committed under the protection of the Israeli government,” denounced the Palestinian presidency in a statement.

“We are at a crossroads, either the international community takes on its responsibilities (…) and forces Israel to stop its aggressions and the crimes of the settlers, or the situation will enter a cycle of action and reaction,” it warned.
