And now the settlers are breaking into this village and there are dozens of casualties #أنقذو_برقة #برقة_تقاوم #فلسطين #Palestine pic.twitter.com/LC7fC36KZp
Clashes between the Palestinian youths and residents and the Israeli army continue; soldiers are joined by thousands of armed Jewish settlers who have descended on the village. Trouble started when the village was shutdown by the Israeli occupation army and increased their presence on the Nablus-Jenin road to secure dozens of busloads packed with Israeli settlers who made a provocative tour of Homesh, north of the village, an Israeli settlement which was evacuated in 2005 according to the PNN.

This proved to be a source of provocation with Palestinian protesters clashing with Israeli soldiers at the entrance of the village firing live bullets, rubber-coated rounds, stun grenades, and teargas against them. Initially, the Palestinian website reported that at least 10 Palestinians were injured through gunfire and another 48 protesters by rubber-coated rounds. Many cases of suffocation from teargas were reported.
Ahl al-burqa now do not sleep and are subjected to occupancy attacks and need to support and help all countries before killing and displaced all residents of the village, if no one is helping now be repeated "Nakba 1948"#save_burqa #برقة_تقاوم #انقذوا_برقه #Palestine pic.twitter.com/BKnNDf8Fxl— AQ (@as_so00) December 26, 2021

Similar clashes also erupted in the meantime at the entrance to the neighboring village of Bazariya as the settlers, protected by the military, were making their way past the village towards Homesh. No injuries were reported.
Even Zionists who are against the occupation of the West Bank & Jerusalem are also STILL settler-colonialists. That's why we say that Zionism is racism & that the only solution is a #FreePalestine - FREE OF ZIONISM - from the River to the Sea! #AllOfPalestine#برقة_تقاوم https://t.co/lJ3x1LWLpw— US Palestinian Community Network (@uspcn) December 26, 2021
Over the last few days, Israeli settlers protected by the army attacked and attempted to raid homes of Palestinian citizens at the outskirts of the village of Burqa, which is close to the route leading to Homesh the Palestine News Network reported.
