For its part, occupation military said in a statement that a group of soldiers in the town of Huwara, just south of Nablus, opened fire on two “suspect” vehicles after a passing car opened fire on separate troops at an Israeli post in the town.
The attack occurred about an hour after the Israeli occupation army announced it was opening a number of entrances into Nablus, which has been under a tight military cordon since October 12.
“Following a situational assessment… it was decided to change the method of restricting movement in the Nablus area and some entrances into the city will be opened tonight,” an Israeli military spokesperson said in a statement shortly after midnight.
