Arrests, interrogations reported in predawn sweep by Israeli army

Plusieurs Palestiniens ont été enlevés et d'autres ont été interrogés par les forces de l’occupation

Several Palestinians were kidnapped and others interrogated by the Israeli occupation forces (IOF) at daybreak Tuesday in a mass abduction sweep rocking West Bank provinces.

The IOF rolled into Nablus, in the northern West Bank, and kidnapped a Palestinian youth, identified as 20-year-old Assim al-Shunar, the son of the lecturer at An-Najah University, Mustafa al-Shunar.

Eyewitnesses also said the Israeli forces stormed al-Ma’ajin neighborhood, west of Nablus, and wreaked havoc on civilian buildings.

Overnight, the occupation soldiers stormed Beita town, south of Nablus, and showered the western neighborhoods and al-Jisr area with sound bombs, sparking panic among children and women.

Meanwhile, clashes burst out in Thanaba, in Tulkarem, shortly after the IOF stormed the town, at around 3 a.m., and rummaged into Palestinian homes.

A PIC reporter quoted eyewitnesses as saying that the Israeli troops unleashed random barrages of bullet fire and sound grenades all the way through the assault.

Several Palestinian citizens have been subjected to intensive questioning and crackdowns at their own homes by the Israeli soldiers.

At the same time, the occupation forces rummaged into three Palestinian homes in Jenin’s southern town of Qabatiya, in the northern West Bank, and subjected the residents to exhaustive interrogation.

Clashes burst out in the area. The Palestinian protesters responded to the assault by hurling stones at the occupation soldiers.
