WEST BANK, (PIC)– Three Palestinians including a minor were assaulted amid Israeli occupation forces (IOF) raids sweeping the West Bank Saturday morning.

The IOF raided several villages in Jenin province and took custody of several Palestinians but later released them.

Military patrol men entered the villages of Bardala east of Tubas and Yabud and Qubatiyya south of the city and roamed the streets without report of arrest.

They arrested several Palestinians amid searches conducted in the Al-Ras Al-Ahmar area but later released those taken.

The IOF set up a random roadblock at the entrance of the Kufeirat searching vehicles and checking IDs.

IOF soldiers assaulted three men in Beit Ummar north of Al-Khalil on Friday evening. Among them was a youth aged 16.

The minor was left with bruises all over his body after being severely beaten.

IOF soldiers launched a tear gas cylinder at another man who then sustained breathing difficulties after choking on the gas, witnesses reported.

Palestinian sources in Dora south of Al-Khalil said IOF soldiers opened fire at a Palestinian man before arresting him. The victim was transferred to a Beersheba hospital to receive treatment.

Witnesses said police hounds were released against him and that he was severely beaten after his injury.
