Israeli forces raid West Bank village

Several Israeli military vehicles rolled into the Palestinian village of Tal, south of Nablus, in the early hours of Saturday and imposed a curfew upon the estimated 6000 residents.

    At least three homes were demolished in Rafah

    According to Aljazeera's correspondent, Khaled Amayreh, the occupation soldiers carried out "meticulous and onerous" house searches.

    Amayreh further reported several incidents of residents having been beaten up and seeing their property destroyed.

    Saturday is also the first day of the winter school term and the curfew meant hundreds, "if not thousands" of school children, were forced to stay at home.

    Tal, due to ongoing invasions and curfews imposed by the Israeli military, remains cut off from the rest of Nablus, reports Amayreh.
