In the Alar town in northern Tulkarem, locals told Ma’an that Israeli forces raided the home of Muayyad Taqatqa and detained his son Yazan, 17.
The family reported that soldiers stole 17,400 shekels ($5,105), 750 Jordanian Dinars ($1,057), and 600 USD from the house.

Israeli soldiers also raided houses of Moayyad Taqatqa’s brothers, and assaulted Nizar Taqatqa, 25, causing a fracture in his arm, destroyed his vehicle’s window and stole car parts from his house.
