NABLUS, (PIC)– Israeli occupation forces (IOF) stormed the village of Orta east of Nablus and rounded up 17 Palestinian youths mostly brothers on Saturday.

Local sources said that the campaign started shortly after the attack on nearby Itamar settlement in which five settlers were killed.

They noted that the soldiers encircled the Orta cemetery and thoroughly searched it.

The IOF troops are still imposing curfews on Orta and nearby villages in addition to blocking entrances to them.

In Burin village to the southeast of Nablus, tens of Jewish armed settlers attacked the village and wreaked havoc in it, eyewitnesses told the PIC.

They said that the settlers vowed to avenge the killing of the five settlers by attacking all villages in eastern Nablus.
