A Palestinian child arrested by Israeli soldiers during a West Bank sweep.
The Israeli occupation forces arrested on Tuesday five Palestinians, including a child, from the Arroub and AlJalazoun refugee camps, in the occupied West Bank.
According to the Palestinian Prisoner’s Society, the Israeli forces kidnapped three Palestinians—Maamoun Rashad Abu Joudeh, Malek Raed Sweilem, and Jaber Wael AlBadawi—from the Arroub refugee camp, north of AlKhalil city.
14-year-old Amer Aweidat was also kidnapped from his family home following clashes that burst out in the camp. Palestinian civilians have also been denied free access out of and into the area as Israeli forces tightened military grip around the main entrances to the camp.
According to the same source, Palestinian citizen Mohamed Iyad Taha was arrested by Israeli forces in AlJalazoun refugee camp, north of Ramallah province, in the central occupied West Bank.
