A special unit of the Israeli occupation kidnapped four young Jerusalemites at the Anata military checkpoint, and raided the homes of Palestinian citizens and arrested a number of them, including a Palestinian man, his wife and his son from Al-Tamimi family.

The occupation forces set up military checkpoints from the entrance to the town of Anata to the town of Hizma, northeast of Jerusalem, which led to traffic jams and impeded the movement of vehicles on the road.
