The Israeli army invaded the West Bank city of Nablus on Friday at dawn and arrested five residents.

Among the arrestees were Um Rami Okop, Samier and Samer Al Sarbess, and Ahmad Al Damoni.  All were arrested after a search campaign in the city, all were taken to unknown locations, eyewitnesses reported.

Nablus is the daily scene of military operations that Israeli military sources claim is targeting the Palestinian resistance, but local residents claim that 90 % of those arrested have been civilians, not involved in any fighting.
