The Israeli occupation forces (IOF) raided at dawn Wednesday a number of homes in Nablus and Tulkarem cities and kidnapped seven Palestinian young men.
Local sources reported that the IOF stormed Nablus city from the east and moved to Dahiya neighborhood where it kidnapped five young men from their homes. Other reports talk about more arrests in different parts of the city.
In Tulkarem city, the IOF also kidnapped on the dawn of the same day two students from Khadouri university after a raid on their apartment near the campus.
In another context, Ahrar center for prisoner studies and human rights accused the IOF of violating the privacy of Palestinians during their raids on homes.
The center said it received dozens of testimonies from dozens of Palestinians detained recently complaining that the IOF had kidnapped them from their bedrooms after destroying the doors of their homes suddenly.
The ex-detainees said Israeli troops snatched them from their beds quickly and take them handcuffed and blindfolded without even allowing them to change their sleeping clothes.
Ahrar considered such arrests a way of intimidation intended to cause a sudden rush of panic among the families and called on human rights groups to necessarily move to fight such incidents that started to rise dramatically in recent times.
