A least 16 Palestinian were kidnapped by the Israeli occupation forces (IOF) from the West Bank and Jerusalem on the break of dawn Thursday.
The occupation army claimed responsibility for the abduction of nine Palestinians from the West Bank provinces of Ramallah, Bethlehem, and al-Khalil on allegations of involvement in anti-occupation activities.
The Israeli 0404 news site said a Palestinian citizen was kidnapped by the Israeli soldiers at Zaatara checkpoint, to the south of Nablus, for holding 100,000 shekels allegedly allocated to funding anti-occupation activities.
Meanwhile, the IOF distributed leaflets threatening to subject Palestinian protesters in Bethlehem’s southeastern town of Beit Fajar to severe crackdowns on account of resistance activities.
The sweep culminated in the abduction of six Palestinians from Occupied Jerusalem, including five from the Old City.
An Israeli army patrol and policemen stormed Silwan town and wreaked havoc on the family home of the slain Palestinian youth Ali al-Sheyoukhi, shot dead on Wednesday by the occupation troops, before they kidnapped his twin brother, Muhammad.
