Dozens arrested in West Bank sweep by Israeli army

Pal kidnapped Azzoun

Several Palestinians were kidnapped by the Israeli occupation forces (IOF) in abduction sweeps rocking West Bank provinces at daybreak Wednesday.

The IOF stormed Qalqilya’s eastern town of Azzoun, in the northern West Bank, and wreaked havoc on over 15 Palestinian homes, before they kidnapped eight civilians.

The IOF also broke into Bethlehem, in the southern occupied West Bank, and kidnapped eight Palestinians, among them three 15-year-old minors from al-Amour family.

At the same time, two Palestinian ex-prisoners—Mohamed Qat and Quteiba Azem—were kidnapped by the IOF from their family homes in Nablus.

Fierce clashes burst out between the Israeli occupation troops and Palestinian protesters in Sufian Street and AlShuhadaa, in al-Khalil.

Seven Palestinians were kidnapped by the IOF from the city, among them the leader of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine, Badran Jaber, 70.

The Israeli army troops ravaged civilian homes in al-Khalil, sparking tension across the city, according to anti-settlement activist Rateb al-Jabour.
