On Wednesday night, illegal Israeli colonizers invaded Qusra and Huwwara towns, south of the northern West Bank city of Nablus, shot a few Palestinians, and burnt cars, stores, barns, and electricity poles.

In Qusra, dozens of colonizers burnt two chicken farms, attacked several nearby homes, and hurled stones at many buildings and cars.

The Palestinian Civil Defense said approximately 30.000 chickens were burnt before the firefighters and volunteers managed to extinguish the fire and prevent it from reaching other farms and buildings.

Dozens of Palestinians intercepted the attack and protested it before the colonizers started firing live rounds, wounding many Palestinians.

The colonizers also set several structures and buildings ablaze before the Palestinian firefighter and locals managed to extinguish the fire.

In addition, the colonizers burnt a Palestinian truck near another chicken farm before the Palestinian firefighter extinguished the fire and prevented it from spreading.

In Huwwara, the colonizers continued the attacks on the Palestinians and their property and fired many live and gas bombs.

Also, Israeli soldiers assaulted and injured Mohammad Saleh Shehada and abducted his son, Abdullah, 18, in their home in Huwwara.

Protests were reported in several parts of Huwwara after dozens of soldiers and paramilitary colonizers invaded it and fired many live rounds, rubber-coated steel bullets, gas bombs, and concussion grenades.

The paramilitary colonizers also attacked and caused damage to several Palestinian cars driving in Huwwara.

Dozens of settlers attacked Palestinian property and vehicles in the Hawara area south of Nablus Thursday afternoon, Palestinian sources say.

According to testimonies, masked settlers threw rocks at Palestinian vehicles near the town, and set fire to a truck and a café in the area. Around the nearby settlement of Yitzhar, settlers reportedly set fire to olive trees.

The Palestinian Red Crescent reported that 53 Palestinians were injured as a result of the attacks, although none of the injuries were serious.

A Palestinian witness to the events in Hawara said that Israeli soldiers who were in the area protected the settlers, shooting Palestinians who attempted to protect themselves from the attacks.

Zvi Sukkot, a candidate for the Religious Zionist Party, tweeted video of the altercations. According to him, Palestinians threw rocks at his car. "Rocks from the front, rocks from the back. You can't move in any direction. [my girls] are crying for their lives. A righteous soldier rescues us finally while firing in the air at the rock throwers," Sukkot wrote.

Clashes also broke out in the nearby city of Nablus following the entrance of scores of worshippers into Joseph's Tomb escorted by Israeli forces. According to Palestinians, the troops drove the pilgrims into the city in military vehicles, and there was an exchange of fire between the soldiers and Palestinians. There were no casualties reported.

The largest skirmishes tonight occurred in East Jerusalem, where hundreds of Palestinians clashed with Israeli forces in several locations. Residents in numerous East Jerusalem neighborhoods set tires and trash cans on fire, hurled rocks and shot fireworks at the forces who responded with riot-control measures such as tear gas and stun grenades.

According to the police, 23 East Jerusalem residents, half of whom were minors, were detained on suspicion of attacking police officers and hurling rocks and Molotov cocktails.
