Israeli occupation forces on Tuesday night blocked Palestinian firefighters from reaching cultivated lands of Anin village, Jenin district, to extinguish a fire that started at a late night hour and continued till Wednesday morning.

 

The village"s municipal council made contacts with a number of parties to urge the IOF to allow fire brigades into the lands cultivated with olive and almond trees because the village inhabitants could not reach their lands after the Israeli separation wall had separated them from their lands.

 

The council chairman Rabah Yassin charged the IOF with deliberately preventing the firefighters from reaching the lands leaving the fire to eat up the fruitful trees for hours before it went off by itself.

 

This is the second fire to gut the 11,500 dunums lands in less than a month.

 

Meanwhile, the IOF soldiers at dawn Wednesday kidnapped a Palestinian young woman near the Ibrahimi Mosque in Al-Khalil city at the pretext of carrying a knife.

 

Another Palestinian youth was detained on Tuesday evening to the east of Nablus city at the same pretext.

 

IOF soldiers stormed a number of villages west of Jenin at dawn Wednesday and kidnapped a citizen after a large-scale combing operation while other units kidnapped an employee working with a charity affiliated with Islamic Jihad Movement in Deir Al-Ghussun village north of Tulkarem after breaking into his home.

 

The IOF soldiers barged into the city of Tulkarem also at dawn Wednesday amidst intensified firing of bullets and sonic bombs but no arrests were reported.

 

Munadel Hanani, the central committee member of the Palestinian popular struggle front, denounced on Wednesday the IOF wave of arrests in the West Bank districts of Nablus, Ramallah, Jenin, Qalqilia and Tulkarem on Tuesday night.

 

He charged the IOF troops with violating human rights in their daily arrest campaigns, and asked international institutions to denounce and to document those violations.
