Palestinian Authority Prime Minister Salam Fayyad on Thursday condemned the destruction of electricity poles in the West Bank village of Kusra on Wednesday.

Fayyad praised the actions of residents of Kusra fortheir right to live on their lands, and asserted Palestinian determination to achieve freedom and independence on the land of an independent State of Palestine, with Jerusalem as its capital, on the borders of 1967.

He called on the international community to take practical steps to ensure the end of "continuing aggression against our people," adding that the actions of the IDF and settlers  "poses a serious threat to any effort aimed at reaching a political solution."

The incident in Kusra was one of at least five clashes between Palestinians and the IDF in the West Bank, with Palestinian sources claiming at least eight Palestinians injured.

Palestinian rock-throwers lightly wounded two border policemen during clashes that broke out while security forces protected an IDF team that demolished illegal construction in the area of Kusra in Samaria.
