Gaza19MayWEST BANK (PNIC):-Several Palestinians were kidnapped by the Israeli occupation forces at daybreak Thursday in abduction sweeps rocking the West Bank and Jerusalem.

Journalist Omayma Sawalha said the IOF broke into her home in Nablus at the crack of dawn and kidnapped her husband Azzam Abu al-Adas, scholar in Israeli affairs. The latter was released from Israeli jails just five months ago.

Another young man—Seif Salah—was kidnapped by the IOF from his home in Nablus’s town of Asira al-Qibliyeh.

Israeli settlers reportedly assaulted the home of the Palestinian citizen Ali Shana’a, resulting in heavy material damage.

At the same time, three Palestinian youths were kidnapped by the IOF from Jenin province.

Youngster Mohamed al-Tamimi, the son of the anti-occupation activist Manal al-Tamimi, was also kidnapped by the Israeli army from the family’s home in Al-Nabi Saleh village, in Ramallah.

Two brothers—Mo’men and Iyas Mahmoud—were further kidnapped by the IOF from their home in Ramallah’s northwestern town of Deir Nidam.

Meanwhile, Israeli military patrols wreaked havoc on civilian homes in the southern occupied West Bank province of al-Khalil.

The campaign culminated in the abduction of the head of the Palestinian Prisoners Society in Occupied Jerusalem, Naser Kaws, after Israeli troops ravaged his home in the Old City. Two more Palestinians were kidnapped by the occupation forces from the city.
