The Israeli occupation police on Sunday kidnaped seven Palestinian young men from their homes in Issawiya district, east of Jerusalem, Palestine Information Centre reports.

The detainees were identified as Anwar Sami Obeid, Hamed Obeid, Mahmoud Zumorod, Mohamed Khaled, Ismail Sanqarat, Malek ash-Sheikh, Mohamed Dawoud.

For nearly five months, Israeli police forces have been raiding the east Jerusalem neighborhood of Issawiya on a daily basis, ransacking homes and arresting and assaulting Palestinians.

The Israeli campaign against Issawiya is aimed at oppressing and making life miserable for all who live there as part of efforts to push the native residents out of the holy city.
