RAMALLAH, June 14, 2012 (WAFA) – Israeli forces Thursday arrested three Palestinians in the West Bank and a number of Palestinians from East Jerusalem, according to local sources.
Head of the Daghameen clan Khader Musleh told WAFA Israeli forces stormed the town of Sammou, south of Hebron, searched several homes and arrested a 95-year-old man.
He said soldiers ransacked the house, mixing foods and recently harvested crops of wheat and barley together.
Forces also arrested two Palestinian teenagers age 16 and 17 after raiding their family homes in the village of Taqou, east of Bethlehem.
Meanwhile, a large police force and intelligence officers conducted since the early morning hours a raid and arrest campaign throughout the East Jerusalem neighborhood of Silwan to arrest what it called “wanted” Palestinians for participating in activities against settlers and forces in the area.
Sources said Israeli police assaulted several families during the raid.
