IOF invade Jenin and Tubas cities, attack citizens


JENIN, (PIC)-- The Israeli occupation forces (IOF) at dawn Monday stormed Tubas and Jenin city and clashed with Palestinian young men.
Local sources said that young men from Faqu'ah village in the east of Jenin threw Israeli troops and their vehicles with stones and empty bottles during an incursion to arrest Palestinian citizens.

The invading troops intensively fired tear gas grenades and rubber bullets at the angry young men causing many of them to suffocate.
Tear gas canisters also fell inside some Palestinian homes in the village leading to suffocation injuries among the residents.

Another force of Israeli troops raided Tamoun village east of Tubas city and kidnapped a Palestinian young man named Adam Bani Matar after they broke into and ransacked his parents' home.

The IOF also invaded Fare'ah refugee camp south of Tubas, established a checkpoint and embarked on checking the IDs of Palestinian citizens.
For its part, the Palestinian prisoner society said the number of detainees from Nablus city who have been kidnapped since Israel started its military aggression against the Gaza Strip amounted to more than 30 Palestinians.
The Nablus detainees in Hawara detention camp told the lawyer of the Palestinian prisoner society that they went on hunger strike in protest at the bad incarceration conditions and appealed for urgent intervention to have them released.
 Director of the society Ra'ed Amer in Nablus said the detainees are being locked up in isolation cells and suffering from extremely poor detention conditions.
Amer added that the IOF intensified their arrest campaign in different West Bank areas following the violent confrontations that broke out there in protest at Israel's war on Gaza.
