Squadrons of heavily armored Israeli soldiers invaded several parts of the northern West Bank on Saturday, abducting 3 Palestinians and causing a number of Palestinian civilians to suffer from tear gas inhalation.
One of those abducted on Saturday was the released prisoner, Mohammad Ahmad Abu Al-Rub, from the village of Jalboun, northeast of Jenin. He had previously been released from Israeli military detention, but on Saturday, at a sudden military checkpoint near Salfit, Abu Al-Rub was detained and taken into custody without charges.
In a related context, security sources told “Wafa” Palestinian news agency that the occupation forces abducted a young man, Mohammad Ahmad Ardah, from the town of Arraba, southwest of Jenin, at a military checkpoint that they had set up at the intersection of the village of Ojja.
In the Israeli military invasion of the villages of Rummana, Zabuba, Al-Taybeh, Anin and Jaba in Jenin Governorate, Israeli forces invaded the villages with massive military force and were met by young villagers who threw stones at the invading army. The soldiers fired tear gas into homes and even into the village mosque in Rummana, causing worshipers to pour out into the street suffering from tear gas inhalation.
In Arraba, in the southwest of Jenin, the Israeli troops forcibly abducted a Palestinian civilian during their invasion.
Local sources reported that in Rummana, west of Jenin, clashes broke out with the youth of the village in the center of town. Israeli soldiers fired gas bombs at the Palestinians, their homes and the village mosque, which led to the injury of a number of Palestinians, including worshipers while they were inside the mosque.
A number of civilians suffered from tear gas inhalation during clashes with the Israeli occupation forces, who set up a military checkpoint at the intersection of the village of Jaba, south of Jenin.
Also Saturday, the Israeli occupation forces abducted a young man from Balata refugee camp, east of Nablus.
Local sources told Wafa that the occupation forces stormed Balata camp, amidst the outbreak of clashes in the area, and abducted the young man, Murad Ghazi al-Kaabi, after they raided and searched his family’s house.
The same sources added that the occupation forces raided and searched a number of homes in the Balata camp, ransacking them and causing property damage.
