Settlers' violence on the rise
Concurrently, the Israeli occupation forces (IOF) stormed the eastern area of Nablus with dozens of military vehicles, heading toward Qaber Youssef, paving the way for Israeli settlers.
The Palestinians have been forced to resist the Israeli settlers' violence on a daily basis. Settlers usually attack Palestinians and their homes, smashing citizens' vehicles, storming holy sites, throwing stones, and shooting live rounds.
The Israeli occupation forces also arrested a Palestinian youth whose identity has not yet been identified.
In retaliation to the occupation's crimes, the Al-Aqsa Martyrs Brigades carried out an ambush against the IOF in response to large-scale Israeli aggression against the Palestinian people in the al-Dahiyah neighborhood in Nablus on Tuesday evening.
Acts of resistance continued in the occupied West Bank and Al-Quds against the Israeli forces and settlers during the last 24 hours.
The occupied West Bank witnessed 31 acts of resistance, including armed attacks, Molotov cocktails, confrontations, and vehicle destruction.
"Israel's" shoot-to-kill policy
A captain in the Palestinian police was shot dead by the Israeli occupation soldiers in the city of Halhul, north of Al-Khalil, Al Mayadeen's correspondent in occupied Palestine reported on Tuesday.
With the death of Abu Dayya, the total number of Palestinian martyrs for 2023 rose to 15, including four children.
It is noteworthy that 224 Palestinians were martyred by the IOF in 2022, including 59 martyrs from Jenin Governorate.
