Israeli forces stormed, overnight Saturday, through Sunday evening, several areas in the occupied West Bank, and abducted eight Palestinian young men, including former prisoners, local sources reported.

Israeli forces invaded, after midnight Saturday, Rummanah village, northwest of Jenin, in the northern West Bank, sparking protests among the local Palestinian youths.

Soldiers fired live rounds, concussion grenades, and tear gas canisters at those who resisted the incursion, injuring one young man with shrapnel.

Soldiers invaded and ransacked the family home of Kamal Abu Bakr, 22, who was shot dead, on Saturday, by an Israeli security guard in Tel Aviv, Israel, in an alleged shooting attack.

The family home was measured by the army, in preparation for a punitive demolition, which constitutes collective punishment under International Humanitarian Law.

Pillage is prohibited.
Reprisals against protected persons and their property are prohibited.
