A number of Palestinians were kidnapped by the Israeli occupation forces (IOF) at predawn time Wednesday in abduction sweeps rocking the West Bank and Jerusalem.
The IOF stormed Tel town, in the northern West Bank province of Nablus, at dawn and wreaked havoc on civilian homes, before they kidnapped two young men aged 23-years-old.
At the same time, dozens of Israeli soldiers raked through Qalqilya’s eastern town of Azzoun, in the northern occupied West Bank, and kidnapped two Palestinian youths.
The IOF reportedly ransacked civilian homes and sealed off the main entrance to Azzoun town.
Overnight, heavily-armed Israeli patrols cordoned off the vicinities of Azzoun Atama and Beit Ameen towns allegedly after gunmen opened fire toward the main entrance to an Israeli settlement illegally built on Palestinian lands in the area.
Meanwhile, occupation patrols rolled into Bani Na’im town, east of al-Khalil, and kidnapped the Palestinian citizen Alyan Khalil and his wife, Umm Muhammad.
Palestinian ex-prisoner Ahmed Ibryoush was kidnapped by the IOF from Dura town, to the south of al-Khalil.
Israeli soldiers also rummaged into civilian homes in Bethlehem before they summoned the young man Hadi al-Wahsh to questioning.
In the meantime, clashes flared up in Beit Rima, west of Ramallah province, after heavily-armed occupation patrols stormed the area and cracked down on Palestinian anti-occupation youth.
The sweep culminated in the abduction of youngster Shadi Muheissen from Jerusalem’s eastern town of al-Issawiya.
