WEST BANK, PALESTINOW.COM – Israeli occupation forces (IOF) on Sunday morning kidnapped a Palestinian boy and a young man with special needs from their homes in the West Bank provinces of Bethlehem and al-Khalil.
Local sources said that the IOF stormed Nahalin town in Bethlehem, raided a Palestinian home and arrested a young man with special needs identified as Mohammed Fannoun.
Eyewitnesses reported seeing IOF soldiers intentionally spitting at walls and cars during the raid, which sparked fear among Nahalin’s residents given the Coronavirus outbreak.
Meanwhile, the IOF raided several Palestinian homes in Beit Ummar town in al-Khalil, wreaked havoc on them, and abducted a 17-year-old boy named Bahaa Raed.
Raed was forced out of his home and taken to an undeclared destination, according to local residents.
IOF arbitrary raids and arrest campaigns are witnessed on a daily basis in the West Bank despite the Coronavirus pandemic. They even have seen a noticeable escalation since the outbreak.
