Israeli Occupation Forces Kidnap 9 Palestinians from West Bank



Israeli occupation forces on Thursday overnight kidnapped nine Palestinians from various parts of the West Bank, according to Palestinian sources.

Israeli soldiers kidnapped two Palestinians after breaking into the houses of their families in the northern West Bank village of Silat al-Harithiya, northwest of Jenin.

In Qalqiliya district, gun-toting soldiers barged their way into Hableh village, south of the city, and detained another. They also detained another Palestinian from Kafr Thulth village.

Meanwhile, the sources confirmed a similar raid in Tubas city, resulting in re-arresting a former prisoner.

In Salfit district, military vehicles stormed Deir Istiya town, where soldiers detained another.

In the southern West Bank, the soldiers conducted a raid in Dheisha refugee camp, south of Bethlehem, and arrested a Palestinian.

They also re-arrested another after storming and thoroughly searching his family house in Hindaza area, east of the city.

Israeli occupation forces frequently raid Palestinian houses almost on a daily basis across the West Bank on the pretext of searching for “wanted” Palestinians, triggering clashes with residents.
