The Israeli forces were described as “firing ammo and gas canisters indiscriminately on homes.”

There were a number of clashes between Palestinian youth and the Israeli soldiers as a result of the Israeli invasion. The youth threw stones in response to the Israeli soldiers firing live ammunition and gas bombs.

In addition to the soldier attacks, Israeli settlers from the illegal settlement Halamish attacked cars on the main road of Nabi Saleh.

No reason or justification for the Israeli invasion has been given, and there are no confirmed reports of any injuries yet.

Nabi Saleh has been attacked many times in recent weeks by settlers and the Israeli army.
