Dozens of Israeli soldiers invaded, on Saturday at dawn, many homes in Bartaâa town, and Toura village, in the northern West Bank governorate of Jenin, violently searched homes, causing excessive damage, and interrogated many Palestinians.
Media sources in Jenin said a large military force invaded Bartaâa town, before breaking into homes belonging to relatives of âAla Rateb Kabaha, 26, who was mildly injured and abducted by the soldiers, Friday, after his car crashed into Israeli soldiers, leading to the death of two soldiers, and wounding two others.
The Israeli army is claiming that the accident was a âdeliberate ramming attack,â and not a traffic accident.
The soldiers smashed the doors of the invaded homes, and conducted violent searches of the properties, in addition to interrogating the Palestinians.
Among the invaded homes are those owned by photojournalist Bahaâ Ibrahim Kabaha, and his brothers Haitham, âAla and Mohammad, in addition to Ahmad Nafeâ Kabaha, Monir Alaqma and Ahmad Ibrahim Ali.
Furthermore, the soldiers invaded Toura village, and stormed the home of a former political prisoner, identified as Ashraf Sami Kabaha, who was also detained and interrogated, before he was released on Saturday morning.
Also at dawn, the soldiers invaded âAzzoun town, east of the northern West Bank city of Qalqilia, and isolated a neighborhood before storming and violently searching ten homes.
