Many arrested in West Bank sweep

06:00 Aug 1 2011 Ein Beit al-Maa, western Nablus; Al-Syoukh in Hebron district

NABLUS, (PIC)-- Israeli occupation forces arrested Monday morning brothers Badr, 25, and Khalid, 21, Abu Namous, from the Ein Beit al-Maa refugee camp in western Nablus, in an arrest sweep in the occupied West Bank.

Witnesses said a massive Israeli military force invaded several areas in the camp. The force proceeded to raid and vandalize the Abu Namous residence, also searching the garden before taking the two brothers into custody.

Elsewhere, heated clashes erupted as an Israeli force raided the same morning several neighborhoods in Al-Syoukh in Al-Khalil governorate.

The force fired live ammunition and stun grenades as it tried to cover itself from rocks and bottles in an attempt to withdraw from the resistant town.

The force managed to arrest one man from the town during a similar raid early yesterday.

Also arrested was honor student Mohammed Abdu Rabo Halayka alongside his father. The arrest came just hours after he gave a speech at a party that the Fatah party sponsored in the town to honor outstanding students.

In East Jerusalem's Issawiyya district, locals reported IOF troops raided several residences in search of men pronounced as ''wanted''.

Meanwhile, an 18-year-old resident of Housan village was bound and blindfolded as other IOF troops carried out raids in Bethlehem governorate.

Reports also show that Israeli authorities have arrested a 70 year-old man from Shyoukh as he visited his son who is currently held prisoner in the Israeli Ramon prison.

Sources from the family say the prisoner Nayif Halayka was placed in solitary confinement immediately after his father's arrest.
