AL-KHALIL, (PIC)– A big number of Israeli occupation forces (IOF) stormed Al-Khalil city at dawn Tuesday and launched a wide-scale arrest campaign in lines of Hamas cadres and supporters, Palestinian sources said.

They said that the invading forces encircled four suburbs then started to break into homes and arrested Hamas leader Ayed Dudeen, who was recently released from prolonged administrative detention, and five brothers from the Qawasmi family.

Two brothers of the same family were killed at the hands of the IOF soldiers, including a child, while two others are serving 20 life sentences and 18 years in Israeli occupation jails.

The soldiers arrested Ezzat Al-Natshe and his brother, the brothers Asem and Asy Al-Qawasmi, and Jalal Yaghmur, who was preparing for his wedding, along with his uncle and cousin.

The sources said that the soldiers arrested four other young men in Al-Khalil city and ransacked the family homes of four martyrs.

In the village of Sa’eer, the IOF soldiers broke into the home of Akram Jabarin and wreaked havoc on it before taking away a number of young men in the village.
