The village has recently witnessed a violent escalation wave by the Israeli occupation, which was represented by frequent night raids and ambushes in deserted houses with the aim of suppressing the march, but the citizens insist on continuing until the achievement of its goals.

In this context, the Israeli occupation forces arrested a Palestinian youth, on Friday evening, after he was injured during the clashes in the town of Kafr Malik, northeast of Ramallah.

Sources reported that the Israeli occupation forces arrested the young Wissam Yusef Akl after he was shot in Kafr Malik.

The clashes erupted after the Israeli occupation forces stormed the village before clashes erupted as a result, during which the soldiers fired a barrage of tear gas, sound, and rubber bullets.

Kafr Malik is witnessing anti-settlement rallies and a rejection of the efforts of the settlers of the "Kfar Shahar" settlement, which is established on the lands of the village, to control the Ein Samia area, which supplies most of the towns east of Ramallah with drinking water.

In addition, clashes erupted on Friday noon (2-5) in the town of Beit Dajan, east of Nablus, following the suppression of an activity that rejects settlements and the establishment of a settlement outpost on the town's lands, and a number of young men were injured, as they confronted settlers' attempts to storm Khan al-Laban south of the city.
