NABLUS, (PIC)– Israeli occupation forces (IOF) detonated a number of explosive devices near the city of Nablus on Sunday which started fire in tens of dunums of Palestinian cultivated land lots.

Local sources said that the incident took place near Zawata village west of Nablus, adding that the fire ate up tens of fruitful trees.

The sources said that the soldiers blocked Palestinian firefighters from reaching the scene to extinguish the fire, claiming absence of prior coordination, which caused a delay in their arrival for more than three hours.

Meanwhile, IOF soldiers arrested three Palestinians in Al-Khalil village of Tafuh at dawn Sunday, locals said, noting that the soldiers broke into homes and searched them after ordering all citizens out of their houses.

IOF soldiers detained three Palestinians from Al-Khalil also on Saturday.
