IOF raids homes, arrests citizens in West Bank dawn campaigns


The Israeli occupation forces (IOF) at dawn Sunday raided several homes and carried out arrests in different West Bank areas.

Eyewitnesses said that Israeli troops at dawn stormed and ransacked al-Salah apartment building in Askar refugee camp, east of Nablus.

One of the residents, from al-Salah family, said that the IOF troops stormed the building where he lives with his brother at four o’clock in the morning and forced all families outdoors before embarking on wreaking havoc on the furniture in the apartments during their search.

During the raid, a Shin Bet officer handed Amjad al-Salah two interrogation summonses against his sons, Mohamed and Ahmed, ordering them to go to Huwara military base and threatened him to ransack the building every two days if they did not comply with the orders.

The soldiers also prevented the family’s children from going to bathrooms, according to an eyewitness. The IOF also arrested several Palestinian citizens in different areas of the West Bank at dawn, including a young man named Mohamed Hamdan from Bireh city and two teenagers identified as Mohamed Thawabteh and Ahmed Taqateqa from Bethlehem.

During the IOF campaign in Bethlehem, violent clashes broke out between young men and soldiers in Assaf street, according to local sources.

An Israeli military force also stormed al-Aroub refugee camp and the towns of Beit Ummar and Bani Naim in al-Khalil and broke into a number of homes, with no reported arrests.
