JENIN, (PIC)– Israeli occupation forces (IOF) broke into and ransacked the home of Sheikh Ahmed Salatna, the director of the Zakat (Alms) committee in Jenin district, before taking him away.

Eyewitnesses said that dozens of IOF armored vehicles surrounded the home of the Sheikh in Jaba village, south of Jenin city, and searched the house for three hours using dogs.

The Sheikh is one of the national and Islamic notables in Jenin and was detained for more than five years in IOF jails. He was also detained and summoned by the PA militias in Ramallah on 15 occasions during which he spent one and a half years in their dungeons.

Salatna, 45, suffers from a brain tumor and his health condition is unstable. He underwent three surgeries in his head and is in need of constant health care.
