JENIN, (PIC)– Israeli occupation forces (IOF) stormed a number of villages in the Jenin district at dawn Wednesday after arresting two children near Arbuna village last night.
Local sources said that IOF soldiers stormed three villages to the south of Jenin and served summonses to three citizens, including Imam of the Sanur village’s mosque, for intelligence questioning.
The soldiers combed the nearby Maythalun village’s environs and set up ambushes in the third village, Jaba, and a roadblock on the Jaba-Sanur road.
Meanwhile, a number of Palestinians were treated for breathing difficulty on Tuesday night after IOF soldiers fired teargas at civilians at the southern entrance of Jenin city.
Locals said that the soldiers at a roadblock in the area detained dozens of vehicles and provocatively searched citizens prompting young men to throw stones at the IOF patrols. The soldiers fired teargas then withdrew from the site.
In another incident, IOF soldiers kidnapped two children from an agricultural field near Arbuna village on Tuesday evening, local sources said, adding that the soldiers took Amin Bani Hassan, 11, and Mohammed Zuhair, 12, to an unknown location.
