WEST BANK, (PIC)– At least five Palestinians were arrested and others, including a small boy were assaulted in Israeli attacks across the West Bank early Thursday.

Israeli occupation forces arrested this morning one man from Beit Awa in the southern province of Al-Khalil during an interrogation.

Four others, most of them ranging from 17-19 years were arrested in a large-scale IOF raid in Araba, which lies south of Jenin city.

Locals said more than 20 military vehicles took part in the raid. They reported ambushes were set up in the alleys and on roof tops.

Four more men were handed summonses during the operation.

IOF troops also raided nearby Marka village, invading a school there and setting up a checkpoint.

The same day, a foreign pro-Palestinian activist was transported to a hospital near Yatta after he was attacked by a Jewish settler.

IOF troops also severely assaulted a seven-year-old boy at Al-Ibrahimi Mosque in Al-Khalil.
