Israeli Occupation Forces (IOF) on Thursday overnight have arrested two ex-detainees, Amin Hamed, 60 years old, and his son AbdulHadi, 30 years old, after raiding their home in Silwad town east of Ramallah, central West Bank.

The family said that special units from the Israeli army broke into the house after exploding its doors, then detained them in one room while female soldiers searched the women.

Before breaking into the home, IOF were searching cars in the neighbourhood, and confiscated Abdul-Hadi’s vehicle which he uses for his work distributing gas tanks.
