The Israeli occupation army on Saturday evening removed a Palestinian flagpole in Nablus’s northern town of Sebastiya, in the northern West Bank.
A PIC news correspondent said heavily-armed Israeli patrols rolled into Sebastiya and showered the area with randomly-shot spates of bullet fire and teargas canisters.
The occupation soldiers further lowered the Palestinian flag raised in the area and destroyed the mast, sparking clashes with Palestinian anti-occupation youths.
The Israeli military forces have often stormed Sebastiya’s archaeological sites and blown up the Palestinian flagpole set up in the area.
The locals raised concerns over growing Israeli attempts to hold sway over Sebastiya’s archaeological sites in favor of illegal settlement.
