Israeli army set fire to Nablus furniture store; losses estimated at $3 million

Nablus - Ma'an - The Israeli army set fire to a furniture store early on Tuesday morning on Al-Quds Street in Nablus, and the losses were estimated at $3 million.

Sabri Hindiyyeh, a partner of Qaser Hindiyyeh furniture, told Ma'an, "the Israeli army fired light and smoke bombs into the store at 2am on Tuesday, turning everything in the shop to ashes."

Sabri says that he has no idea why the army attacked the four-storey establishment, and appealed to PA officers to intervene and help them deal with disaster.

For the last few weeks Israeli forces have stepped up their operations in Nablus, with raids resulting in mass arrests and the closing of major commercial centers. Also on Tuesday morning Palestinian security sources said that Israeli forces detained 28-year-old Ma'moun As-Safadi after storming his house in the old city of Nablus.
