Report: IDF damages Nablus shops and water lines

Dozens of Palestinian shops and homes were damaged, and water, sewage and electrical lines were cut in the West Bank town of Nablus on Saturday by IDF blasting of concrete barriers blocking entrances to the crowded Old City, officials at City Hall said. The predawn explosions left thousands without running water and electricity, though repair teams were out by mid-morning. Said Handiyeh, a Nablus city council member, estimated the damage at $100,000. He said a 60-year old woman was slightly hurt by shattering glass. The IDF said it would look into the report.
