Five Palestinians were arrested by the Israeli occupation forces (IOF) in Jenin’s western town Yabad, in the northern West Bank, on suspicion of carrying out a drive-by shooting towards an Israeli military site in the area, Israeli media reported Monday.
According to the Hebrew-speaking Walla news site, the five Palestinians were arrested by the occupation army on allegations of carrying out a drive-by anti-occupation shooting attack towards an army position in the northern West Bank on December 30, 2016.
The abduction was carried out as part of a joint IOF and Shin Bet operation
The car which Israelis suspect was used for the shooting was impounded.
Last month, indictments were filed against the five anti-occupation suspects.
Meanwhile, a Palestinian youth in his twenties of age was kidnapped by the Israeli soldiers from his family home in the southern occupied West Bank province of Bethlehem following claims that a hunting rifle and ammunition were spotted in the house.
The arrestee was transferred to an Israeli detention center pending intensive questioning.
At least 23 Palestinians were kidnapped by the Israeli forces from the West Bank and Jerusalem overnight Sunday and at daybreak Monday.
