IOF attack supporters of Sheikh Jarrah residents
Israeli occupation forces proceed with their attacks on the residents of the Sheikh Jarrah neighborhood in Al-Quds, as Palestinian youth confront the occupation in Anzah village, west of Jenin.
The Israeli occupation forces attacked Friday people standing in solidarity with the residents of Sheikh Jarrah Neighborhood in Al-Quds, protesting the eviction of Palestinian families from their homes.
Earlier this month, Israeli settlers stormed the neighborhood and assaulted its residents amid an IOF-imposed lockdown on the area, Al Mayadeen correspondent reported.
The lockdown came to provide protection for the Israeli settlers, who carried out a provocative march in light of an alleged stabbing operation in occupied Al-Quds.
On December 13, the occupation municipality teams and bulldozers began digging a 4,700-sqm land, owned by four Palestinian families, which was used as a parking lot and carwash, reported WAFA news agency.
For his part, Ahmad Al-Rawidi, an advisor in the Palestinian Presidential Office, considered that what is happening in Sheikh Jarrah paves the way for the seizing of 28 estates for the purpose of establishing 200 settlement units.
As a matter of course, many of Al-Quds residents would be forced to migrate, as a means to change the demography of the city.
Al-Rawidi added that what happened in Sheikh Jarrah comes in the context of the Israeli policy that intends to impose new geography and demography in occupied Al-Quds through their complete control over the lands to establish new settlement projects.
Palestinian youths confront occupation forces
On the other hand, Palestinian youths confronted Friday the Israeli occupation forces at the entrance to Anzah village, west of Jenin, after the Israeli forces intensified their military deployment in the vicinity of the area's villages.
53 Palestinians were injured, some of whom even suffocated, as a result of confrontations with the Israeli forces in the northern occupied West Bank.
The Red Cross reported that seven were shot with rubber-coated metal bullets, 43 suffocated from tear gas, and three suffered injuries while fleeing the Israeli forces' bullets.
Sources pointed out that three injured Palestinians were transferred to the hospital for treatment, while the rest of the injuries were dealt with on the spot.
The Israeli occupation forces also arrested youths Shadi Abu Isneineh and Muhannad Abu Hadwan from the Old City of Al-Quds.
