Palestinians counter IOF attacks in West Bank and Al-Quds
The Israeli occupation forces and settlers attack Palestinians in the West Bank and Al-Quds, which was followed by confrontations.
On Sunday, Palestinian media reported that Israeli occupation forces (IOF) stormed the city of Al-Zahiriyah, south of Al-Khalil, while Palestinian youths confronted them after storming the town of Abu Dis, east of occupied Al-Quds.
Israeli settlers also attacked Arafat Salim Al-Tahan from Al-Quds and burned his vehicle while he was in Ramallah. They also ransacked the homes of citizens in Madama, south Nablus, who confronted them.

Palestinian youths targeted vehicles of settlers in Nablus and Beit Lahm and destroyed several of them.
Confrontations erupted with the occupation forces, and Palestinians stood up to the attacks of Israeli settlers on the West Bank.
Local sources reported that the Palestinian youths targeted settlers' vehicles near the Za'tara checkpoint and smashed their windows amid the intensive deployment of the occupation forces in the place.
The Israeli occupation also set up the Za’tara military checkpoint on the lands of Yasuf village near the village of Za’tara in the central West Bank to prevent Palestinians from moving between the northern and central West Bank and through traffic that passes between the cities of Ramallah and Nablus.
The residents of Madama village, south of Nablus, underwent an attack by a group of "Yitzhar" settlers, who attacked the homes of citizens from the southern side of the town. Activists warned that settlers would commit crimes against citizens and their property, calling for activating guard committees and taking caution, especially in villages adjacent to illegal Israeli settlements.
Israeli settlers have recently escalated their attacks against citizens and their property under the protection of the IOF.
In a related context, the IOF arrested the freed prisoner Yazan Muayyad Al-Saadi, 27, from the Jenin refugee camp, at a military checkpoint they established on the Nablus-Jenin road.

In Beit Lahm, young resistance fighters targeted an Israeli bus with stones, near the village of Jouret Al-Shama, south of Beit Lahm, shattering its windows.
Confrontations also erupted between Palestinians and the occupation forces inside the village of Husan, west of Beit Lahm, after a force of the occupation army stormed and fired a barrage of poison gas bombs at the citizens and their homes.
Local sources indicated that the clashes erupted in Al-Muteena area at the eastern entrance to the village, as a result of which dozens of citizens were injured by suffocation with poison gas. The village of Husan is attacked continuously by the occupation and settlers.
The IOF also arrested six citizens from the Dheisheh refugee camp, south of Beit Lahm on Monday at dawn.
A security source told Wafa that Kareem Mustafa al-Atrash (58 years), his wife Aida Muhammad Al-Atrash (55 years), their son Muhammad (29 years), Imran Issa Maali (43 years), Ahmed Maali (34 years), and Jihad Issa Maali were arrested during a raid and search of their homes.
Increased resistance operations in Palestinian territories
During the month of May, the Palestinian territories in the West Bank and occupied Al-Quds witnessed remarkable rises in resistance operations against the Israeli occupation and its settlers with more field confrontations and acts of resistance carried out.
In its monthly report on the activities of the resistance in the West Bank, the Palestine Information Center "Maaty" documented 1,358 acts of resistance during the month of May, which coincided with the "Israeli flag march."
