The resistance responded with a powerful explosive device detonated in a military vehicle in Qalqilya, and fierce gunfights in Balata refugee camp and al-Hesba neighborhood. These clashes come amidst the ongoing Israeli aggression on the Gaza Strip, and have raised concerns within Israeli security and military circles about a potential uprising in the West Bank against illegal Israeli settlers.

In Qalqilya, the Palestinian Resistance fighters took a decisive stance against the occupation forces’ incursion into the city and their arrest of several youths. Responding with force, the resistance successfully detonated a powerful explosive device in an Israeli military vehicle, sending a strong message to the occupiers.
Meanwhile, in the Balata refugee camp, east of Nablus, confrontations intensified as the occupation forces encountered heavy gunfire from the Palestinian Resistance. The al-Hesba neighborhood also became a battleground between the two forces, as the resistance fighters fiercely opposed the Israeli occupation.
While the resistance put up a strong fight in Qalqilya and Balata, the Israeli occupation forces intensified their campaign across the West Bank.
In Yata and Halhul, near al-Khalil, the occupation forces implemented raids on residences and the Islamic Charity Association. The Israeli occupation forces swiftly seized equipment and devices, provoking further anger and resentment among local Palestinians.
Israeli aggression claimed innocent lives, an elderly Palestinian man, Issa Al-Qadi, was fatally shot by Israeli occupation soldiers in al-Khalil, while Muntasir Saif, 34, succumbed to his injuries sustained from the occupation forces’ gunfire in the village of Burka.
In addition to the arrests made during the incursions, the Israeli occupation forces continued their aggressive tactics by storming various towns, including Beit Rima, Areeha, Aqabat Jabr refugee camp, and several neighborhoods in the city.
The Palestinian Resistance’s successful repulsion of the Israeli occupation forces’ incursions into the West Bank has highlighted their determination and defiance against the oppressive occupation.
