JENIN, (PIC)– Israeli occupation forces arrested late Wednesday night the son of imprisoned Islamic Jihad leader Bassam al-Saadi in an ambush on the Ramallah-Nablus road in the occupied West Bank.

Suhaib, 20, from Jenin refugee camp was returning from Ramallah to Jenin when Israeli soldiers set up a mobile checkpoint and detained him and his vehicle, locals reported.

Another of Saadi’s sons Izzuddin was arrested by the PA late last week.

Separately, the IOF combed Thursday morning much of Jenin governorate Thursday at dawn without report of arrest. Ambushes were set up in open areas and in olive groves, Palestinian sources reported.

Witnesses said dozens of soldiers were deployed in the region between the towns of Al-Yamoun and al-Irqa and incursions were made in the al-Irqa until morning hours.

Jenin governorate has recently seen significant military movement and increased arrests at checkpoints.
