15 acts of resistance in the past 24 hours
It is noteworthy that the occupied West Bank witnessed 15 acts of resistance, including armed attacks, throwing Molotov cocktails, confronting settlers, and destroying vehicles, during the past 24 hours.
Palestinians confronted Israeli settlers' attacks, and one of the settlers' vehicles was destroyed in the town of Hawara, south of Nablus.
Additionally, Resistance fighters targeted the "Karmi Tzur" illegal settlement in Al-Khalil and shots were fired during confrontations with the occupation forces that stormed the town of Beit Ummar, north of the city.
This comes at a time when the Lions' Den Resistance group announced on Tuesday that it raised the state of alert and readiness among its fighters in Nablus, Ramallah, Al-Khalil, and Jenin.
The group announced that its fighters carried out five shooting operations last Friday, targeting the Beit Furik and Hawara checkpoints, in addition to targeting gatherings of the occupation soldiers at the "Gerzim" checkpoint in the occupied city of Nablus.
