The Israeli forces, at dawn Saturday, stormed several Palestinian-owned homes and abducted Palestinian civilians during invasions into different occupied West Bank towns, the Palestinian Information Center reported.

Local sources said, Israeli soldiers stormed the Balata refugee camp in Nablus, in the northern West Bank and abducted two Palestinian young men identified as, Abd-Rabo Hashash and Fathi Abu Rizq from their homes.

Another youth, Ibrahim Sameer, from Askar refugee camp, was abducted by the Israeli soldiers stationed at the Zatara military roadblock in southern Nablus.

Two more unidentified Palestinian young men were reported to have been detained by the army, from the outskirts of Jibiya village in northern Ramallah, central West Bank.

In Hebron (al-Khalil), the Israeli troops detained two Palestinians from the Old City, shortly after the young men were physically assaulted by illegal colonists. The detained youths were identified as, Amjad Mahmoud and Malek Haroun.

The Israeli military has escalated its policies of the arbitrary detention of young Palestinian men, under the pretext of ‘resisting the occupation’.

Israel continues to incarcerate 5,000 Palestinian prisoners in its jails and detention centers, some of whom are women and children.

Israeli forces detained even more Palestinians, prior to this report, including a former prisoner from a military roadblock between Nablus and Ramallah in the central occupied West Bank.
