The Israeli Occupation Forces (IOF) conducted overnight and at dawn Monday violent raid and search campaigns throughout West Bank, while tensions are still running high in occupied Jerusalem.
In Jenin, IOF soldiers stormed overnight several neighborhoods in the eastern and southern parts of the city and erected four military checkpoints amid overflights of reconnaissance aircraft.

Similar raids were carried out in Anabta town to the south of Tulkarem. A young man was rounded up during the raids when dozens of Israeli forces stormed and violently searched his family house.
A military checkpoint was also erected at the entrance to the nearby town of Kafr al-Lubad amid heavy presence of IOF troops.
