Official: Israel destroys electricity grid in Nablus

Feb. 20, 2013 2:19 P.M. (Updated: Feb. 23, 2013 2:18 P.M.)
NABLUS (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces demolished an electricity grid in Nablus on Wednesday, leading to clashes with local residents, a Palestinian Authority official said.

Israeli bulldozers arrived in the village of Qusra at noon and destroyed an electricity grid in the area, cutting off power to dozens of residents, PA official Ghassan Daghlas told Ma'an.

Local youths threw stones at Israeli forces, who fired tear gas and sound grenades at villagers, he added.

Several people were lightly injured.

An Israeli army spokeswoman did not return calls seeking comment.
