Israeli settlers attack village near Ramallah

According to Al Jazeera, at least five local residents were wounded as a result

DUBAI, March 3. /TASS/. Israeli settlers have attacked one of the villages near the West Bank city of Ramallah, injuring at least five residents, Al Jazeera reported.

According to the TV channel, about 150 attackers stormed the village on Saturday night, throwing stones at vehicles and windows. At least five local residents were wounded as a result.

Tensions flared up again in the Middle East on October 7, 2023, when militants from the Gaza-based Palestinian radical group Hamas staged a surprise incursion into Israeli territory from the Gaza Strip. Hamas described its attack as a response to the aggressive actions of Israeli authorities against the Al-Aqsa Mosque on the Temple Mount in Jerusalem’s Old City. In response, Israel has declared a state of war readiness; announced a total blockade of the Gaza Strip, home to 2.3 million Palestinians; and began delivering air strikes on the enclave and certain parts of Lebanon and Syria. Clashes are underway in the West Bank as well.
