On Monday evening, illegal paramilitary Israeli colonizers invaded the Al-Awja town, north of Jericho, in the northeastern part of the occupied West Bank.

Local nonviolent activist Salah Freihat said many paramilitary colonizers invaded Al-Awja, closed the intersection, and threatened to attack the Palestinians if they did not leave.

Freihat added that, instead of removing the colonizers, Israeli soldiers flew surveillance drones over various Palestinian neighborhoods and intersections.

It is worth mentioning that, on Sunday evening, the soldiers forced all stores shut after breaking into them and confiscating surveillance recordings and are still refusing to allow them to reopen.

In related news, illegal paramilitary Israeli colonizers attacked Palestinian cars in Huwwara town, south of Nablus, in the occupied West Bank’s northern part.

Israel’s colonies in the occupied West Bank, including those in and around occupied East Jerusalem, are illegal under International Law, the Fourth Geneva Convention, and various United Nations and Security Council resolutions. They also constitute war crimes under International Law.

Article 49 of the Fourth Geneva Convention states: “The Occupying Power shall not deport or transfer parts of its own civilian population into the territory it occupies.” It also prohibits the “individual or mass forcible transfers, as well as deportations of protected persons from occupied territory.”

UN Security Council and UN General Assembly resolutions have condemned Israeli policies in all its forms in the occupied Palestinian territories, whether it be the seizure of Palestinian land for various military purposes, the construction of illegal Israeli colonies, or the creation of bypass roads.

On Monday evening, illegal paramilitary Israeli colonizers attacked Palestinian cars in Huwwara town, south of Nablus, in the occupied West Bank’s northern part.

Ghassan Daghlas, a Palestinian official who monitors Israel’s illegal colonialist activities in the northern West Bank, said the colonizers gathered along the Huwwara road and closed intersections.

Daghlas added that the colonizers hurled stones at many Palestinian cars, causing damage, while Israeli soldiers stood there without intervening.

Many colonizers also closed the Al-Manshara area near Burqa town, northwest of Nablus, while Israeli soldiers intensified their deployments near many military roadblocks around Nablus city.

Furthermore, the soldiers closed the Huwwara military roadblock south of Nablus, preventing the Palestinians from crossing.

The soldiers also stopped and searched dozens of Palestinian cars at the Sorra military roadblock west of Nablus.
