IOF launches arrest campaign in Shufat

Palestinian National Authority - Ministry Of Interior
Israeli occupation forces (IOF) launched a campaign of arrests in Shufat refugee camp and nearby suburbs in occupied Jerusalem on Sunday, local sources said.
They said that IOF soldiers focused on Shufat and Ras Khamis and rounded up eight citizens from the refugee camp some of them boys.
The sources said that liberated prisoner Omar Muhaisen and three of his relatives were arrested along with four others in the camp. They said that a number of citizens were given summonses.
The locals noted that undercover agents were seen deployed in the area backed by IOF units.
Meanwhile, Israeli occupation police escorted municipality teams in Silwan town that took photos of entrances to a number of suburbs, their alleys and houses served demolition notices.
The workers refused to divulge reason for the act and tried to assault a young man who attempted to impede their work.
Meanwhile, in the Jordan Valley IOF soldiers closed Al-Hamra roadblock that links northern West Bank to Jericho and the border crossing to Jordan.
The soldiers told citizens that military maneuvers were being conducted and crossing was not allowed. Hundreds of vehicles were forced to take an alternative bypass road that took them two more hours to reach their destination.
