PNN/ Nablus/

Israeli Occupation Forces (IOF) on Tuesday overnight demolished the family home of a Palestinian martyr near Ramallah.

According to locals, IOF demolished the family home of  Mohammed Tarek Yousef in Kobar village, northwest of Ramallah, after storming the area and forcing the family to leave the house.

Yousef had carried out a stabbing operative in Adam settlement last month, in which one settler was killed and two others were injured. He was killed on the spot.

Violent clashes broke out between the citizens and the Israeli soldiers during the demolition process.

Meanwhile, over 750 settlers broke into the Joseph’s Tomb site in Nablus, causing more clashes.

Palestinian medical sources said that 5 people were injured by live bullets. One of the injuries was a serious injury to live bullets in the main artery of the thigh, where he was admitted to the operation room.  Another citizen was shot in the leg. All those who were wounded were taken to the Rafidia governmental hospital in Nablus.

On the other hand, sources said that IOF carried out a raid and arrest campaign in various cities of  the West Bank  including Ramallah and surrounding villages,  Deheisheh refugee camp south of Bethlehem, Jenin and Nablus cities.

The sources also reported the outbreak of violent clashes in Jerusalem, where IOF stormed a house in the town of Al-Eizariya.
