The Israeli occupation forces (IOF) stormed the city of Nablus early on Monday and raided a number of houses and neighborhoods, where they arrested four Palestinians from the city after breaking into their homes and damaging their contents.
The father of captive Bara’a Nawaf said that the occupation forces stormed their home in Ma’ajin area west of the city of Nablus at three o’clock in the morning, and arrested his son after damaging the contents of the detainee’s room.
The Israeli forces arrested three young men from other parts of the city, where they raided Ein Beit al-Maa camp and stormed the house of Abu Khalifa and arrested the young man Rabi’i Munir Abu Khalifa after searching his home. Names of other detainees are not yet known.
The occupation forces released Dr. Mustafa Shunnar, a lecturer at Al-Najah University in Nablus, after five-days in Israeli prisons, where he was interrogated for long hours before being released. The Israeli occupation forces also released Yasser Abu Tama’a and Awni Camille, from the city of Jenin.
Meanwhile, the village of Yabad, south of Jenin, has witnessed at dawn today, wide confrontations between the occupation forces and Palestinian youths, followed by Israeli decision to close the eastern entrance of the town.
Local sources said that the occupation forces that stormed the eastern neighborhood of the town continuously provoked citizens, which led to the eruption of the clashes during which youths threw stones at the neighboring Israeli military camps.
The sources pointed out that the occupation forces – and as a kind of collective punishment to the citizens – closed Monday morning the eastern entrance to the town and banned the movement of citizens, forcing the students and employees to take longer routes.
The soldiers told the citizens that they will not be allowed to cross from the region because they threw the occupation forces with stones, and set up checkpoints in the area.
