Ex-prisoners among several Palestinians kidnapped by Israeli army


Several Palestinians were kidnapped by the Israeli occupation forces (IOF) at daybreak Tuesday in abductions weeps rocking West Bank provinces.

The IOF stormed al-Khalil’s northern refugee camp of al-Arroub and wreaked havoc on civilian homes, before they kidnapped two Palestinian ex-prisoners—Hamam Sweilam and Sa’id Banat. Both were dragged to the Israeli Etzion detention center.

Overnight, the occupation authorities detained 24-year-old Sharaf Abu Bakr, from Jenin’s southern town of Yabad.

Abu Bakr, an ex-prisoner, was arrested by the Israeli forces as he attended his friend’s hearing at Israel’s Salem Military Court, west of Jenin. His family learned about his detention a few hours later.

Last month, at least five Palestinians were arrested by the Israeli occupation forces at Salem Court.

At the same time, four Palestinian young men were kidnapped by the Israeli troops from the northern occupied West Bank province of Nablus.

Eight Israeli army patrols rolled into the city at the crack of dawn and kidnapped the four Palestinians.

The IOF showered Nablus’s northern town of Asira al-Shamaliya with heavy spates of stun grenades.

Youngster Mohamed Hanani was kidnapped by the IOF from 1948 Occupied Palestine (Israel), sources from Beit Furik town, in Nablus, told the PIC.

The campaign culminated in the abduction of another young man—Udai Hanani—from Kafr Kana, after the IOF published his photo and claimed that he attempted to carry out anti-occupation attack in 1948 Occupied Palestine.

Video of the Week New Clashes Erupt Between Israeli Security Forces, Muslim Worshippers

Temple Mount temporarily closed to Jewish visitors after clashes with police

The Temple Mount was temporarily closed to Jewish visitors on Wednesday at the order of Jerusalem District Commander Yoram Halevy after Jews broke visitation rules at the holy site, police said. The Jewish visitors were expelled from the compound for bringing sacred books to the Mount and trying to pray there. After one of the individuals was cautioned, another took out a holy book, and the group was expelled. Meanwhile, renewed clashes erupted between protesters and Israeli security forces near the Lion's Gate in the Old City, where police used stun grenades against the demonstrators. A regular dynamic has developed involving clashes between Palestinians and Israel Police over the past several days near the Lion's Gate. Dozens of Palestinians are present at the site on a regular basis, urging devotion to the Al-Aqsa Mosque on the Temple Mount and condemning Israel. During Muslim prayer times, particularly the midday and nighttime prayers, hundreds and sometimes even thousands have been gathering there.

There have been outbreaks of violence during these periods, including stone-throwing or physical confrontations with the police. In most of these incidents, the police have been using stun grenades and sponge-tipped bullets to disperse the crowds. In a number of cases, journalists in the area have also suffered violence at the hands of the police. On Tuesday, Hassan Shaalan, a reporter for the Ynet news website, was struck by a policeman even after he identified himself as a member of the press. A group of Jerusalem-based journalists released a statement of condemnation over the incident and called on the police to permit reporters to do their jobs. The Jerusalem Police responded: "This involved an incident that took place in the course of violent disturbances of the peace that occurred in Jerusalem while the police were acting to remove the demonstrators from the street after some of them refused to vacate. The forces working on the scene are under constant threat to their lives. http://www.haaretz.com/israel-news/1.802141
