JENIN, (PIC)-- The Israeli occupation forces (IOF) at dawn Monday launched violent raids in different West Bank areas near Jenin and Nablus cities and kidnapped three Palestinians.
Local sources reported that dozens of Israeli troops broke into and ransacked the house of Mohamed Abu Baker in Rummana village before they took him in chain to an unknown place.
The IOF also established a military checkpoint near Yabud village and interrogated a 30-year old man named Mutassim Yehiya before handing him a summons from the intelligence.
Different other areas of Jenin such as the villages of Methlon, Ceres and Sanur also saw intensive deployment of Israeli troops and patrols.
Other two young men were also reportedly kidnapped during raids in Beta village near Nablus city.
Consequently, violent clashes broke out at dawn between young men from Beta village and the invading troops.
In a separate incident on Sunday, Israeli intelligence officers under military protection stormed Silwan district in occupied Jerusalem and handed many young men summonses for interrogation, local sources said.
On the evening of the same day, the IOF raided a number of homes in the nearby town of Issawiya in Jerusalem and kidnapped a young man named Mohamed Mustafa.
