BEIRUT, LEBANON (10:20 P.M.) – At dawn on Tuesday, the Israeli army launched a campaign of arrests among Palestinians, as they stormed several cities in the West Bank, claiming that these people were wanted by the authorities.
The Israeli forces stormed the town of Sebastia, north of Nablus, and closed the archaeological site to the citizens, without citing the reasons.
The mayor of Sebastia, Muhammad Azim, said: “The town is systematically exposed to the incursions of settlers and occupation soldiers, in an attempt to impose a fait accompli and control the monuments in the town.”
In the town of Ya’bad, southwest of Jenin, two young men were arrested and several houses were raided. Several neighborhoods were raided in Ramallah and ten Palestinians were arrested, including previously freed prisoners.
Violent confrontations also took place between the Israeli army and Palestinians in some of the neighborhoods that were stormed.
