Gaza19May1RAMALLAH (PNIC):-Israeli occupation forces (IOF) arrested eight Palestinian citizens during a Tuesday night and Wednesday dawn incursions into various areas in the West Bank, while a number of Palestinian citizens were injured during the clashes that erupted between the Palestinian youths and the invading Israeli soldiers.

The Israeli army said in a statement that its forces arrested eight Palestinians, who the statement described as ‘wanted’, including seven at the pretext of carrying out activities related to popular resistance against the Israeli occupation.

The IOF launched raids and arrests in the cities of Tubas, Tulkarem, Bethlehem and al-Khalil, including the storming of Palestinian homes and forcing families out in the cold weather.

In Bethlehem, the IOF arrested the child Ali Khaled Najjar, 14, from Nahalin town.

Israeli troops stormed the house of the Hamas MP in the city of Tulkarem, Abdul Rahman Zidan, and arrested his son, Anas.

In al-Khalil, IOF soldiers raided the town of Beit Ummar, north of the city, in four military vehicles, and stormed the area adjacent to the settlement of Karmi Tzur south of Beit Ummar, and arrested a young man.

According to the PNIC reporter, the forces stormed the house of Nadi Salem Sabarneh, held the entire family in a room, searched the house and destroyed its furniture. The invading forces arrested Anas Yousef Sabarna and took him to a detention center in Etzion settlement bloc.

In Tubas, the occupation forces raided the Farsi area in Wadi al-Maleh, east of the city, in the northern Jordan Valley, and arrested Wadih Alan Daraghmeh, after raiding the Bedouin tents and searching them in the area.

Sources told the PNIC reporter that Israeli soldiers raided and searched the tents and interrogated the residents, including women and children.

At dawn, a large number of civilians, including women and children, suffered breathing problems due to the IOF-fired teargas during clashes in the town of Tayasir, to the east of Tubas city.

Local sources told the PNIC reporter that the clashes began at the entrance of the town at the junction of Tayasir and then spread to the streets, and the occupation forces fired teargas intensively on the houses.

The IOF raided the houses of Nasser Abu Khudair and Mohammed Anboussi, assaulted the occupants and interrogated them, before they arrested Obeida Mohammed Anbosi, and took him to an unknown destination.

On Wednesday morning, clashes broke out between Palestinian youths and Israeli occupation forces to the east of Nablus after dozens of settlers stormed the Tomb of Joseph in the city under the protection of an army battalion.

In Jenin, in the northern West Bank, the IOF continued to block all entrances to the town of Ya'bad to the south of the city.

Local sources told the PNIC reporter that the Israeli soldiers cut all roads linking the town of Ya'bad and the surrounding areas, and broke into the houses of citizens, beating them violently, and smashing down furniture in some houses.

The sources added that the military bulldozers started in the early morning to build sand barriers there, closing all entrances, and restricting the movement in and out of the town near the main entrance, where a permanent Israeli barrier is present.

Locals said that the Israeli soldiers are hiding at the entrance of the town, beating and questioning citizens passing from there, and detaining them for long periods.

These actions followed an incursion and siege of the town, which began on Tuesday evening after the IOF claimed that an attack against a bus loaded with Israeli settlers took place at the Dotan military checkpoint near the settlement of Dotan.
