BETHLEHEM (Ma’an) -- Israeli forces reportedly assaulted two Palestinians during an Israeli raid on the village of Qusra south of Nablus city in the northern occupied West Bank on Wednesday, and seized a tractor belonging to the village.

Ghassan Daghlas, a Palestinian official who monitors Israeli settlement activities in the northern West Bank, told Palestinian news agency Wafa that Israeli forces raided the village and assaulted Muhammad Abu Marshad and Mahmoud Abu Hamza, while seizing a tractor owned by the municipality of Qusra.

A spokesperson for the Coordinator of Government Activities in the Territories (COGAT), the Israeli military agency responsible for enforcing government policies in the occupied Palestinian territory, told Ma'an that "a Palestinian tractor that was spilling garbage in a pirated site adjacent to Kutzra village was confiscated."

Israeli raids in Palestinian towns, villages, and refugee camps are a daily occurrence in the occupied West Bank, including East Jerusalem.
