Bulk282WEST BANK (PNIC):-Several Palestinians were kidnapped by the Israeli occupation forces (IOF) at daybreak Wednesday in abduction sweeps rocking West Bank province.

The Israeli army claimed responsibility for the abduction of 15 Palestinians from the West Bank on allegations of their involvement in anti-occupation protests.

The IOF rolled into Jenin province at the crack of dawn and kidnapped two young men after they wreaked havoc on civilian homes and cracked down on the inhabitants.

A makeshift military checkpoint was set up by Israeli soldiers near Arraba at dawn.

At the same time, three Palestinians, including two 16-year-old minors, were kidnapped by the IOF from Nablus’s southern town of Madama overnight.

Two Palestinian young men were also kidnapped by the occupation forces from the Arroub refugee camp, north of al-Khalil, and dragged to the Etzion detention center.

Overnight, an Israeli settler fired gunshots at an unarmed Palestinian south of al-Khalil city before he run away, the targeted youth Bilal al-Zaatari said. The latter sustained injuries in his right hand and was transferred to a Red Crescent clinic for treatment.
