Israeli occupation forces stormed the village of Deir Nidham, northwest of Ramallah, this morning and closed its main entrances.
Ahmed Al-Tamimi, head of Deir Nidham’s village council, told the news agency that the occupation forces stormed the area in the morning and closed its main entrances, imposing a siege on it.
He pointed out also that “there have been large numbers of occupation forces in the village since the morning, who claimed that school students are throwing stones at settlers along the main road.”
Al-Tamimi explained that in the meantime the occupation forces besieged the school in order to threaten students and intimidate them with detention if they throw stones.
The head of Deir Nidham’s village council confirmed that two weeks ago, the Israeli occupation forces continued to storm the village on a daily basis under the pretext that the children were throwing stones at settlers.
He also stated that “Occupation forces have been terrifying our children and students over the past two weeks, three days ago they threw gas and sound bombs in to the school, scores of children and teachers suffered from suffocation as a result and this endangered the lives of our children.”
Al-Tamimi added that “while the settlers of Halamish settlement are harassing citizens by closing the main road of the village and throwing stones at our vehicles under the protection of the occupation forces, the occupation claims that the villagers are throwing stones at the heavily armed settlers.”
