Four Palestinians were injured during an Israeli occupation forces IOF invading the town of Burqa, northwest of Nablus in the occupied West Bank early Saturday morning, on September 2nd.

Arrests in Conjunction IOF Incursion
Coinciding with the incursion in Nablus, Israeli forces arrested four young men from the West Bank amid confrontations with Palestinians.

The sources also noted that confrontations erupted between Israeli forces and youths in the town, with tear gas canisters being fired by IOF.
In Ramallah, Israeli forces arrested Ahmed Fawaz Hamran from Beituniya to the west, and university student Ibrahim Saud Bani Odah and Mohammed Dar Hamed from the village of Ain Yabrud to the north-east of the governorate. This occurred after the Israeli forces raided and searched their homes.
Israeli forces continue to engage in semi-daily incursions and arrests across the West Bank, perpetuating a climate of fear and instability for Palestinian communities. These routine operations involve raids on Palestinian homes, arbitrary detentions, and the disruption of daily life.
Significantly, IOF carried out a substantial wave of arrests during the month of June, targeting a total of 380 Palestinians, including 45 children and 10 women, across the West Bank, Jerusalem, and the Gaza Strip, as documented by the Palestinian Center for Prisoners’ Studies.
