Dozens of soldiers invaded, on Sunday morning, the ar-Ras al-Ahmar area, southeast of Tubas in the West Bank, and confiscated an agricultural tractor belonging to a local farmer.
âAref Daraghma, a Palestinian expert in coloniesâ affairs and Israeli violations in the occupied territories, said the soldiers confiscated a tractor belonging to Saâir Yousef Bisharat, and took it to a nearby military base.
Daraghma added that the soldiers confiscated seven tractors from several Palestinians, in the same area, since the beginning of this month.
The army constantly tried to prevent the Palestinians from working on their lands in the area, under various claims, including being close to Israel’s illegal colonies, and military bases.
On Sunday at dawn, the soldiers abducted three Palestinians, including a 15-year-old child, in occupied Jerusalem, and took them to a detention facility.
Also at dawn, the soldiers invaded Beit Fajjar town, south of the West Bank city of Bethlehem, and Husan village, west of Bethlehem, searched homes and abducted two Palestinians, in addition to summoning two others for interrogation.
On Saturday evening, the soldiers installed a sudden military roadblock closing the main road leading to Zabbouba village, west of the northern West Bank city of Jenin, stopped and searched dozens of cars and interrogated many Palestinians while inspecting their ID cards.
The army claimed its soldiers were attacked by Palestinians who hurled stones, and a Molotov cocktail, on their vehicles.
