Zionist Israeli forces arrest 15 Palestinians across West Bank
Rabid-dog Israeli military forces have reportedly arrested 15 Palestinians during separate overnight operations across the occupied West Bank.
Military vehicles rolled into al-Orouj Village, east of Bethlehem, early on Thursday and arrested a 28-year-old woman, identified as Rabe’ah Mostafa al-Orouj, along with her two brothers after breaking into their home.
Israeli troops also arrested two young men in the town of Beit Fajjar, eight kilometers (4.9 miles) south of Bethlehem, the Arabic-language Safa news agency reported.
In the Dheisheh refugee camp just south of Bethlehem, Israeli armed forces detained two Palestinian youths.
Violence broke out as local residents engaged in clashes with Israeli troopers.
Israeli forces fired stun grenades as well as tear gas canisters to disperse the crowd, wounding at least two young men.
Separately, Israeli military forces stormed the house of 25-year-old journalist Issa Jamal Makhamreh in the city of Yatta, 8 kilometers south of al-Khalil (Hebron).

Seven Palestinians were also arrested in other parts of the West Bank, including the town of Tell southwest of Nablus and Balata refugee camp in the northern West Bank.
More than 160 Palestinians, including children and women, have lost their lives at the hands of Israeli forces since the beginning of last October.
Tensions have escalated following Israel’s restriction of entry by Palestinian worshipers to the al-Aqsa Mosque compound which is the third holiest site in Islam.
