Palestinian Resistance confront IOF West Bank and Al-Quds raids
The West Bank and Al-Quds witness armed confrontations in several areas after the Israeli Forces (IOF) raid Jenin, Tubas, and Al-Isawiya.
Palestinian Resistance fighters confronted Israeli Occupation Forces (IOF) in a number of areas across the West Bank and Al-Quds following raids.
In Al-Isawiya, the IOF detained three young men after the occupation forces stormed the town in occupied Al-Quds.
The townspeople confronted the IOF, who used skunk water to disperse crowds and attack resistance fighters, while also firing live ammunition.
Skunk water is known to have a "truly putrid stench," according to a BBC report from 2015.
Palestinians sprayed by "Skunk" describe it as "worse than raw sewage, like a mixture of excrement, noxious gas and a decomposing donkey."
Skunk water, which was initially developed by the Israeli company Odortec, was first employed by the IOF against protesters in the occupied West Bank in 2008. Since then, it has been common to see armored vehicles with water cannons that shoot skunk water.
Not only did the IOF raid Al-Issawiya, but also undercover Israeli agents (Musta'ribeen) shot a Palestinian youth, and violently detained him.
Furthermore, Ayham Halabiya's home was raided and he was illegally detained from his home in Abu Dis, east of Al-Quds.
Below is a video that shows Halabiya bidding his family farewell as IOF soldiers announce his detention.

Palestinian medical sources reported that a young man sustained moderate injuries in the shoulder and thigh areas, and was subsequently transferred to the hospital for treatment.
It was also reported that the IOF stalled and detained another injured Palestinian for several hours at Al-Jalama military checkpoint before the Palestinian Red Crescent transferred him to the hospital.
