IOF arrested seven in the West Bank overnight

According to Israeli channel 10 news, the IOF arrested three in Zububa (northwest of Jenin), one in Qalqilia, one in Beit Ummar, two in al-Fuwar (southwest of Hebron). All arrestees were transferred for interrogation.

In al-Fuwar, local youth hurled stones at the invading soldiers, who responded with tear gas and stun grenades at the heart of residential areas. Soldiers arrested Islam Jamil ‘Amer al-Titi (20) and Thaer Muhammad ‘Abd Rabo Ghatasheh (20) and tried to arrest the son of Bassem al-Najar who was not at home. The army then retreated in the morning. In addition, the IOF raided Halhoul and set up a checkpoint on the bridge.

In Beit Ummar, the IOF staged a large scale raid of 200 soldiers and arrested four people: Mahmoud ‘Ayad ‘Awad and his son Ibrahim (who works for the PA national security forces). The two were also beaten by the soldiers who attempted to force them to give up another son, Muhammad (22) who was not home at the time of the raid. In another part of town, the IOF arrested Jalal Muhammad Zidan Man’am Abu ‘Ayash (19) and Muhammad ‘Imad Sa’adi al-Khalil (18). The raiding soldiers reportedly used excessive violence: soldiers brutally attacked Muhammad Yusuf al-‘Alami and through him into a hole in the ground; they assaulted Wael Yusuf Zidan Man’am Abu ‘Ayash (25); another young man, Ziad Muhammad Kamel al-Khalil (19) suffered gunshot wounds and was hospitalized in Hebron. The occupation army used live ammunition as well as rubber coated bullets and tear gas against local youth and only withdrew from town after 7am.

In Zububa, the IOF arrested Muhammad ‘Imad Mahmoud ‘Amarneh (21), Ahmed Fathi ‘Amarneh (20) and Muhammad Ibrahim Jaradat (22) during raids in their homes. In addition, the IOF staged a sweet in Kufr Dan against what they call ‘unlicensed water wells.’
