(MEMO) — An Israeli soldier shot live ammunition and tear-gas bombs at Palestinian students who were leaving their school in the northern occupied West Bank village of Tell in Nablus yesterday.
Palestinian security sources said Israeli settlers attacked Palestinian vehicles as they traveled along the main Nablus-Qalqilya road near the illegal Israeli settlement of Yitzhar.
No injuries were reported in either incident however cars were damaged.
Ghassan Daghlas, an official who monitors settlement activity in the northern West Bank, said that Israeli settlers threw rocks at Palestinian vehicles near the Yitzhar settlement, causing damages.
Israeli settlers blocked the road near Yitzhar.
Palestinian towns and villages in the Nablus area are surrounded by Israeli settlements and outposts, many of which are protected by the Israeli military.
Between 500,000 and 600,000 Israelis live in Jewish-only settlements across occupied East Jerusalem and the West Bank in violation of international law.
