SALFIT, (PIC)– Israeli occupation forces (IOF) stormed downtown Salfit on Monday night and fired rubber bullets and teargas at citizens wounding ten of them.

Local sources said that IOF soldiers patrolled the city streets on foot in a further provocation of the citizens who threw stones and empty bottles on the invaders.
