Several Palestinians were kidnapped by the Israeli occupation forces (IOF) at daybreak Tuesday in an abduction sweep rocking the West Bank.
The Israeli army claimed responsibility for the abduction of 11 Palestinians at predawn time on allegations of their involvement in anti-occupation activities and protests.
The IOF stormed Kafr al-Lubad town, in Tulkarem, and kidnapped the girl Alaa Fukaha from her family’s home.
The campaign also targeted a Palestinian civilian from Nahaleen town, west of Bethlehem, a young man from Salfit, two young men from Qalqilya’s eastern town of Azzoun, and another from al-Dhahriya town, south of al-Khalil.
Ex-prisoner Saleh Shakarna was kidnapped by the IOF from his family home in Nahaleen.
14-year-old Palestinian child Khalaf Najajra was kidnapped by Israeli soldiers from the town shortly after they broke into his family home.
Female ex-prisoner Fidaa Ikhleil, 23, was also kidnapped from al-Khalil’s northern town of Beit Ummar.
Fierce clashes flared up in the area between Palestinian anti-occupation youth and Israeli patrols.
At the same time, violent clashes rocked Salfit’s Old City after 12 heavily-armed Israeli patrols rolled into the area via its northern entrance and kidnapped the father of the Palestinian young man Muhanad al-Zeir, who has refused to turn himself in for the second day.
The occupation forces attacked the locals with randomly-fired spates of rubber bullets.
Meanwhile, the IOF stormed the home of the wheel-chaired Palestinian prisoner Adnan Hamarsha, in Jenin’s southwestern town of Yabad, and subjected the family to intensive physical search.
