Days Of Palestine - West Bank
The Israeli occupation forces (IOF) at dawn Wednesday kidnaped five Palestinian citizens during campaigns in the West Bank and Jerusalem.
A statement released by the Israeli army claimed the five detainees were wanted by the security authorities for their involvement in activities against Israel.
According to local sources, the IOF kidnaped 16-year-old Mohamed Abu Diya from his home in Khirbet Safa village near Beit Ummar town in the north of Hebron.
Another two young men were taken prisoners during dawn police raids on their homes in the Jerusalem district of Silwan. They were identified as Naser Ajjaj and Tayseer Abu Subaih.
Later in the morning, the Israeli police in Jerusalem summoned two female journalists called Maysaa Abu Ghazala and Sundus Owais for interrogation after they documented Israeli violations at the Aqsa Mosque.
In a separate incident, the IOF confiscated on Tuesday a Palestinian-owned bulldozer in Atouf area, southeast of Tubas, without providing a reason for its measure.
