AL-KHALIL, (PIC)– Israeli occupation forces (IOF) rounded up five Palestinians in Al-Khalil and two others in Jenin on Thursday and fired tear gas canisters at a mosque in Doura town in Al-Khalil causing material damage.

Quds Press quoted eyewitnesses as saying that the soldiers fired a number of gas grenades at a group of young men near the mosque on Wednesday evening one of which fell inside burning part of its carpet.

The soldiers at dawn Thursday detained five Palestinians in Al-Khalil, two in the city, and three in Sa’eer village, local sources said, adding that the soldiers served summonses to five brothers in Sa’eer for interrogation at the intelligence headquarters in Etzion settlement.

The sources said that the soldiers forced their way into homes and shops in Sa’eer and wreaked havoc in them before taking away the three youths.

Meanwhile, IOF troops arrested the deputy chairman of the Kufairat village south of Jenin Assaad Eghbariye, 46, before dawn Thursday.
