IOF continues its attacks and arrests against Palestinians in the West Bank

Bethlehem/PNN/

The Israeli Occupation Forces (IOF) arrested at dawn Friday three Palestinians from occupied Jerusalem and Hebron south of occupied West Bank.

Israeli radio claimed that two Jerusalemites were detained and sent for investigation after a home-made bomb was in Shufat refugee camp.

Another Palestinian was arrested in Hebron after Israeli forces allegedly found a hunting rifle in his possession. The number of Palestinian prisoners held in Israeli prisons has reportedly seen a dramatic rise since the beginning of the third Palestinian Intifada last October.

Also the Israeli occupation police kidnapped a Palestinian teenager on the road between Shuaafat refugee camp and Beit Hanina town in Occupied Jerusalem at the pretext of possessing a knife.

The Israeli occupation forces (IOF) last night  broke into and ransacked several Palestinian homes in al-Rashayda village, east of Bethlehem city.

Chief of the village Fawwaz al-Rashayda said that Israeli troops stormed three homes in the village and wreaked havoc through them. Rashayda explained that the soldiers ravaged the windows and doors of the houses and tampered with their contents and furniture, pointing out that the military force withdrew from the village without making arrests.
