At least 23 Palestinians were kidnapped by the Israeli occupation forces (IOF) at daybreak Monday in an abduction sweep rocking the West Bank.
The Israeli army claimed responsibility for the abduction of 23 Palestinians from the West Bank.
Israeli soldiers raided Nablus city and wreaked havoc on civilian homes before they kidnapped four Palestinian young men, among them 21-year-old Mohamed Amer. The occupation soldiers smashed the car of Amer’s brother.
Two Palestinian journalists—Alaa al-Titi and Amir Abu Aram—working for al-Aqsa TV Channel were also kidnapped by the occupation forces from al-Khalil and Ramallah provinces.
Last week, an Israeli court ruled that Aqsa correspondents be banned from working in the occupied West Bank for one year.
The campaign culminated in the abduction of two Palestinians from Bethlehem, another from Nablus, three from Ramallah, one from Jericho, and another from al-Khalil.
In the meantime, IOF soldiers in a flock of Israeli military jeeps stormed Jenin’s refugee camp, in the northern West Bank, and ransacked civilian homes before they kidnapped two Palestinian young men, identified as Nour al-Hendi and Hamouda Abu Khalifa.
The IOF further set up a military checkpoint near the main entrance to Jenin’s southern town of Yabad, where Palestinian civilians have been subjected to tough crackdowns and intensive inspection.
