Israeli occupation forces (IOF) at dawn Saturday stormed houses of three Palestinian martyrs in Beit Fajjar town to the south of Bethlehem.
According to the PIC reporter, the IOF broke into the houses of martyrs Esam Thawabteh, Ali Thawabteh and Ali Taqatqa, and wreaked havoc on them, but no arrests were reported.
Esam Thawabteh was killed after carrying out a car-ramming attack near Gush Etzion settlement, while the other two Palestinians were shot dead near Ariel settlement after carrying out a dual anti-occupation attack.
In another context, a group of Palestinians from Aida refugee camp targeted at dawn Saturday an Israeli military tower at the northern entrance of Bethlehem with homemade explosive devices. The IOF soldiers searched and combed the area but they were not able to find any of the attackers.
