IOF kidnap 18 youths across West Bank, Monday overnight

PNN/ Bethlehem/

Israeli Occupation Forces (IOF) on Monday overnight have kidnapped 18 Palestinian youths from cities across the occupied West Bank.

The kidnap campaign included the cities of Nablus, Jenin, Tulkarm, Qalqilia, Jerusalem, Bethlehem and Hebron.

Nearly 7,000 Palestinians are currently being held in Israeli jails, many of whom were detained during the near-daily raids carried out by the IOF in Palestinian towns and villages.

Such raids are often carried out in areas under full Palestinian jurisdiction and frequently lead to clashes between Palestinian residents and the IOF.
