The Israeli occupation forces (IOF) kidnaped at dawn Saturday a group of Gazan workers in southern Jenin and carried out raids in different West Bank areas.

According to local sources, Israeli forces kidnaped several Gazan workers in Barta’ah town, which is isolated by the separation wall in southern Jenin.

Eyewitnesses said that Israeli soldiers kidnaped the workers from an apartment building in the town after savagely assaulting them, adding that they also broke into a number of homes during the same raid.

Meanwhile, a general strike has been observed in Jenin province in mourning for martyr Islam Khamaisa, the commander of the Jenin Brigade who was killed last night in an Israeli airstrike on a house in Jenin refugee camp.

The IOF also broke into and ransacked a number of homes in Hableh town, south of Qalqilya, with no reported arrests.

Israeli forces reportedly raided a house belonging to a wanted citizen identified as Tareq Dawoud and attacked local youths with stun grenades in Qalqilya City.

In Nablus, a child suffered a bullet injury in his shoulder during a violent IOF raid in Balata refugee camp, while resistance fighters detonated an explosive device at IOF vehicles in Burqa village.

The IOF also carried out raids in other West Bank areas, without making arrests.
