Israeli soldiers on Thursday afternoon invadedÃ‚Â Aida refugee camp,Ã‚Â near the West Bank city of Bethlehem, and arrested one member of the Palestinian security forces. Another security man was arrestedÃ‚Â at a checkpoint near Jerusalem.
The Palestinian Ministry of Interior reported that soldiers arrested AlaÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ Ahmad abu ShÃ¢â‚¬â„¢era, member of the Palestinian security forcesÃ‚Â in Bethlehem, in the Aida camp and took him to an unknown destination.
Soldiers conducted house-to-house searches in the camp and interrogated dozens of residents, especially youth.
In a separate incident, troops based at al-Container checkpoint, on Wad al-Nar Road, the only link between southern and northern West Bank areas, arrested Ayman Radi Ibrahim, a member of the Palestinian AuthorityÃ‚Â security forces in Bethlehem.
Ibrahim was heading back to his home in the northern West Bank city of Jenin.
The container checkpoint, located between al-Sawahreh and Bethlehem near Jerusalem, hasÃ‚Â became a border-crossing in all senses of the term, dividing the West Bank into northern and a southern cantons.
