NABLUS, (PIC)– Violent confrontations were reported on Saturday in the village of Iraq Burin  near Nablus between Israeli occupation forces (IOF) and villagers after the troops sealed off the entire village.

Local sources said that the clashes erupted after the IOF soldiers closed the village before all outsiders and declared it a closed military zone.

The IOF soldiers were trying to block entry of foreign solidarity activists wishing to take part in the weekly village march against confiscation of their land and erection of the racist, separation wall.

The sources said that the soldiers fired bullets and teargas canisters at the citizens and their homes, causing breathing difficulty among women and children.
