NABLUS, (PIC)– The Israeli occupation forces on Monday afternoon clashed with Palestinian natives after raiding Iraq Burin village south of Nablus city in the northern West Bank.

Israeli patrols were met with stones after making a surprise raid on the village, said local councilman Abdul-Raheem Qaddous. He added that the soldiers fired bullets and tear gas at the locals.

Witnesses said a man identified as Dhib Mustafa was shot in the face during the exchange, and the IOF hindered the ambulance from reaching him.

Repeated friction has been reported in the village as it subjected to raids from time to time by Israeli forces and Jewish settlers.

More clashes broke out on Saturday during a weekly march staged by locals protesting settlement activity, when the army declared the village a closed military zone and prohibited supporters from entry in order to torpedo the effort.
