TUBAS, (PIC)-- Israeli occupation forces (IOF) stormed at dawn Tuesday the governorates of al-Khalil, Tubas and Nablus, and arrested five Palestinians.

The IOF has escalated the arrests campaign, particularly in the ranks of Hamas supporters in the West Bank since the beginning of the aggression on Gaza.

Local sources said that the Israeli forces arrested Haitham Khalid Qasrawi, 30, after storming the city of Tubas and raiding his family's house.

According to the sources, the Israeli troops stormed a number of houses in the city of Nablus and searched them, then arrested two Palestinian youths; one of them is a student at Al-Najah University, while the other is a liberated prisoner who served 18 months in Israeli jails.

Two other Palestinian citizens, from al-Khalil, have also been arrested by the IOF after breaking into their houses and transferred to an unknown destination.

Meanwhile, eyewitnesses told PIC that: "The occupation forces suddenly closed the Halhul Bridge this morning, to enable Israeli technicians and the officers of the Shin Bet to set up cameras on both sides of the main street towards Halhul and the city of al-Khalil.

Halhul Bridge witnessed yesterday violent clashes between Palestinians and the Israeli soldiers. Ten Palestinians and two Israelis have been wounded, while a Palestinian citizen Hamdi Al Falah (20 years) died after being shot with four bullets by the Israeli soldiers who also prevented the ambulance crew from providing him treatments until he died.
