The Israeli occupation authorities arrested three more Palestinians early this morning after raiding their homes in Ramallah and Hebron. Mohammad Al-Rum was detained at his home in the Qaddura refugee camp in Ramallah. The arrest of Ayman Abu Omar took place in Hebron and Ahmed Al-Tal was held at his home in Al-Thahiriya.

A young Palestinian was wounded during violent clashes in Qaddura camp after a group of young men confronted the Israeli troops in response to the raids.

The occupation forces also delivered “investigation notices” to a group of youths in Al-Arroub refugee camp, in northern Hebron, and in Bethlehem. In addition, they raided a number of homes in Shuyoukh village, and searched them thoroughly.

Violent clashes broke out in Beit Furik, in eastern Nablus, between the Israelis and Palestinian youths after the town was hit by reinforcements for the security forces.
