The Israeli occupation forces (IOF) raided on Saturday dawn a number of Palestinian houses in different areas of the occupied West Bank and interrogated their residents.
Violent confrontations broke out between Palestinian youths and the IOF soldiers as the latter stormed Beit Rima town in Ramallah province. The Israeli soldiers fired tear gas canisters and sound bombs while the Palestinian youths responded by throwing stones and empty bottles.
The IOF raided the house of Yousuf al-Najjar in Silwad town to the north of Ramallah city and confiscated a surveillance camera’s recording device that belongs to him.
Meanwhile in Bethlehem, the IOF broke into a house for al-‘Asa family in al-Ubeidiya town and handed their son Hamza al-‘Asa an order to appear before the Israeli Intelligence.
In another development, the Israeli Jerusalem Municipality crews delivered on Saturday morning a demolition notice for the house of Faraj Siam located in Wadi Hilweh neighborhood in Silwan town under the pretext of building without a permit.
This came few days after his son Mohammed Siam was handed a similar demolition notice for his house.
An agricultural tractor was stolen by the IOF on Friday from a Palestinian land south of Tubas city.
Local sources reported that the Israeli forces took the tractor to the nearby al-Hamra checkpoint and detained its driver and other Palestinian workers for several hours.
