RAMALLAH (Ma‘an) 18 July -- Israeli forces raided the northern West Bank village of Qaryut south of Nablus on Sunday firing gunshots into the air as well as stun grenades and tear gas canisters. The village was under curfew until late into the night. Eyewitnesses told Ma‘an that the invading troops shouted through loudspeakers using foul language and threatening to continue raiding the village for three days. "Israeli forces ransacked several homes beating its residents. A woman and a disabled man sustained bruises," a local said. A minor, Ubada Mahmoud Hussein, 13, was detained after he was beaten by the soldiers. Israeli authorities have recently confiscated about 200,000 square meters of the village’s agricultural land to expand an illegal settlement outpost in the area.
