JENIN - - Israeli troops and intelligence officers on Monday stormed and ransacked Palestinian homes belonging to Hamas-affiliated citizens in the town of Yabad, west of Jenin.
The troops forced the Palestinian families out, searched their homes and interrogated some of them before leaving the town without any reported kidnappings.
In another incident, the Israeli occupation forces (IOF) kidnapped eight Palestinian citizens during incursions carried out at dawn Tuesday in the districts of Ramallah, Al-Khalil and Qalqiliya.
For their part, a number of savage Israeli settlers from Katzir settlement near the town of Yabad tried Monday evening to enter the town and its surrounding villages and spread panic in the area before withdrawing late at night.
On the same day, other settlers from Mabo Dotan settlement near the town of Arraba tried to place a mobile building inside a nearby abandoned military post, but Israeli troops intervened and removed the structure.
