The Israeli army claimed responsibility for the abduction of 18 Palestinians and also seized thousands of shekels from homes of slain Palestinian protesters.
Several Palestinians were kidnapped by the Israeli occupation forces (IOF) at daybreak Tuesday in abduction sweeps rocking the occupied West Bank.
The Israeli army claimed responsibility for the abduction of 18 Palestinians on claims that they have been
involved in anti-occupation activities.
The occupation forces also seized thousands of shekels from homes of slain Palestinian protesters.
The Israeli army said seven Palestinians were arrested in Idna and al-Koum villages, near al-Khalil, as they attempted to enter the 1948-Occupied Palestine ('Israel').
The occupation troops also stormed the homes of slain Palestinian anti-occupation activists in Ramallah’s northwestern town of Deir Abu Mishaal and stole money, before they kidnapped the Palestinian young man Nidal Ata, the brother of slain Baraa Ataa.
Six Palestinians, including two ex-prisoners, were also kidnapped by the IOF from their homes in Tulkarem province.
At the same time, dozens of Israeli soldiers stormed Qabatiya’s eastern neighborhood, south of Jenin, and kidnapped the Palestinian youngster Ali Kmeil after they wreaked havoc on his family home and attacked his relatives.
Overnight, the occupation army unlocked the Hawara military checkpoint, south of Nablus, after a horde of Israeli settlers assaulted Palestinians in the area, leaving several civilians injured.
