Israeli occupation forces escalate attacks on West Bank
Israeli occupation forces escalated their attacks during the night against Palestinians in the occupied West Bank.
Residents confronted the settlers after they tried to raise the Israeli flag near the entrance to the town of Beit Ummar in Al-Khalil.
Israeli settlers attacks on the citizens of Al-Khalil also escalated. On Sunday night, groups of them attacked homes of citizens in the Jaber neighborhood, adjacent to the Ibrahimi Mosque.
In occupied Al-Quds, a group of settlers attacked a number of young men, while the occupation forces arrested a young man from the Bab Al-Amoud area after settlers hurled stones at him.
Yesterday, Al-Quds Brigades, the military arm of the Palestinian resistance faction Hamas, said it will conduct two-day-long military exercises in the Gaza Strip entitled "The Will of the Honest" (Azm Al-Sadiqin), Al Mayadeen's correspondent reported on Sunday.
Al-Quds Brigades had announced on Saturday that they would be launching wide, large-scale drills in the Gaza Strip in order to up the preparedness of the forces and to lay down the groundwork for any future battle.
The joint operations room of Palestinian Resistance factions had launched the Al-Rukn Al-Shadid 2 joint military exercises in late December.
The drills saw the participation of all the Palestinian Resistance factions to achieve greater harmony, unite their concepts, and increase their efficiency.
The military maneuvers in late 2021 came in light of the Israeli aggression launched on the Gaza Strip, which killed hundreds of Palestinians, wounded hundreds of others, and destroyed the Strip's infrastructure.
