Israeli occupation forces kidnapped on Thursday overnight 20 Palestinians, including MP and two fishermen in Gaza.

Local Palestinian sources said that the Israeli occupation forces raided several Palestinian cities, neighbourhoods and villages in occupied West Bank and Jerusalem.

The sources said that the Israeli occupation forces broke into Palestinian homes and kidnapped 17 Palestinian citizens.

Before the start of the kidnapping campaign, the Israeli occupation forces set up a flying security checkpoint at the entrance of Araba neighbourhood and kidnapped the MP Ibrahim Dahbour.

Meanwhile, in Gaza, the Israeli occupation navy kidnapped two fishermen off the Gaza coast and confiscated their fishing boats.

Palestinian police identified the kidnapped fishermen as Khader al-Saadi and Rajab abu-Reyaleh from Al-Shat’e refugee camp.

These kidnappings brought the number of the Palestinian MPs inside Israeli prisons to 12.
