West Bank/PNN/

The Israeli occupation forces (IOF) at dawn Monday kidnapped 14 Palestinians from their homes in different West Bank areas.

A report released by the Israeli army said that its forces arrested 14 wanted Palestinians in the West Bank, 11 of them accused of being involved in activities against the army and settlers.

According to the report, the IOF arrested seven Palestinians from Deir Abu Mash’al town near Ramallah and one Hamas activist in Qibya village, northwest of Ramallah.

Six others, including two from Hamas, were taken prisoners during IOF campaigns in the towns of Dura, Beit Ummar and Beit Awwa.

For its part, Quds Press reported that the IOF stormed Qarawat Bani Hassan town near Salfit and handed ex-detainee Ramzi Mar’ie a summons for interrogation from the Shin Bet.

He was released about two months ago after he completed 14 years in prison.

According to Quds Press, an Israeli military force raided the house of journalist Qais Abu Samra, who works for Anadolu news agency, in Sanniriya village near Qalqilya and questioned him about the nature of his job and his position on the coup attempt and related events in Turkey.

A press in Halhoul town north of al-Khalil was also raided by a group of Israeli troops, who confiscated some of its equipment. In Nablus, Israeli soldiers occupied at dawn several neighborhoods of Aqraba town for a while and then withdrew without making arrests.

The IOF also imposed a curfew last night on Huwara town, south of Nablus.
