OCCUPIED JERUSALEM, (PIC)– Clashes took place on Tuesday between the Israeli Occupation Forces (IOF) and the residents of the town of Issawiya in occupied Jerusalem.

The clashes took place following the arrest of a number of children in the town of Issawiya by a force reinforced with elements belonging to special units in the Israeli occupation army, who were disguised in plain clothes.

Eyewitnesses told PIC’s reporter “Clashes erupted between the youths from the town in the eastern region and the occupation forces that stormed the area when undercover agents set up an ambush to arrest a number of children and youths”.

Meanwhile, IOF arrested citizen Mohammed Amin Nazzal, 50, and his son after storming their house in the city of Qalqilya , according to Tadamun Foundation for Human Rights.

Nazzal’s wife told Tadamun Foundation that scores of Israeli soldiers broke into their house to search it, before arresting her son and her husband, who suffers from stomachache and lumbar disc disease.

She also noted that her husband had been previously arrested several times in the occupation’s jails where he had served more than seven years, most of which in administrative detention.

Local sources said that IOF also arrested a citizen from Yabad village in a shop in Barta’a village located behind the Apartheid Wall and took him to an unknown destination, noting that Barta’a’s commercial market has been exposed to a continual raids campaign and arrests against citizens working there.
