Israeli tear-gas bombs cause fire in Nablus-area farm

Sept. 22, 2018 4:18 P.M. (Updated: Sept. 26, 2018 3:28 P.M.)
NABLUS (Ma'an) -- Fire erupted in a Palestinian-owned fire in the Sabasitiya village, in the northern occupied West Bank, as Israeli forces fired tear-gas bombs and live ammunition during a raid to the town on predawn Saturday.

The mayor of Sabasitiya, Muhammad Azem, said that Israeli forces caused a fire in a farm in the town by firing tear-gas bombs and live bullets, during predawn raids, and took down Palestinian flags raised across the town.

Clashes erupted between Israeli soldiers and Palestinians; several locals suffered tear-gas inhalation.

Israeli raids into Palestinian towns and villages are near daily occurrence in the West Bank and East Jerusalem.

Sabastiya is located some 12 kilometers outside the city of Nablus, is the site of ancient ruins dating back 3,000 years, and was listed in the Oslo Accords among the archaeological sites of importance to Israel and designated a "national park."
