The same sources reported that the IOF raided the neighboring  village of Abu Shkeidem, kidnapped the Palestinian youth Ahmad Farouq, and transferred him to an undeclared destination.

Meanwhile in Nablus, the IOF arrested the ex-prisoners Asem Ghuneim and Mujahed al-Qotob after searching their homes and wreaking havoc on them.

Violent clashes broke out in the area between Palestinian youths and the IOF soldiers who heavily fired tear gas bombs.

Eyewitnesses said that the IOF stormed Kafr Thulth town in Qalqilya and arrested Jaree Shawahneh from his home. At the same time in Bethlehem, the IOF abducted Ahmad al-Amour after raiding his family home in Tuqu' town.

At daybreak Wednesday 12,000 Israeli settlers stormed Kifl Haris in Salfit and performed Talmudic rituals at Islamic shrines under the protection of the IOF who had sealed off the town.
