Israeli forces close village searching for Molotov thrower

NABLUS (Ma’an) -- Israeli forces entered the Nablus-area village of Madama on Wednesday night, searching for young residents allegedly behind a Molotov Cocktail-throwing incident earlier in the day.

Member of the local village council Hasan Ziyadeh said that during the raid soldiers closed down the town, preventing residents from leaving their homes and searched several residential buildings under the cover of gunfire before detaining one man.

Twenty-four-year-old Amir Nassar, the official said, was taken from his home by one of the ten military vehicles which entered the village during the raid. The official said he believed soldiers were looking for rock-throwers.

Amid the chaos of the raid, Ziyadeh said, ambulances could be heard heading to a nearby settlement.

An Israeli military spokeswoman said two Molotov cocktails were thrown toward a settler road in the area, prompting troops to search for those behind the incident. She said the man detained was suspected of involvement in the incident.
