Israeli army invades Tulkarem

Feb. 23, 2008 3:57 P.M. (Updated: Feb. 23, 2008 3:57 P.M.)
Tulkarem - Ma'an - The Israeli army invaded the city of Tulkarm in the northern West Bank on Friday night, amid gunfire and sound bombs.

According to our correspondent, quoting from Palestinian security sources, the Israeli army had informed the Palestinians of its intention to expand its security checks in the city but without specifying its goal. This warning was followed by the invasion of Israeli forces into the city.

The troops opened fire on shops, forcing their owners to close and also stopped a number of passing cars in the city especially around Gamal Abd An-Nasser Square, Ma'an's correspondent said.

The city of Tulkarm then witnessed clashes between young men throwing stones and the Israeli soldiers.
