IOF troops kidnapped at dawn Monday 19 Palestinian citizens in different areas of the West Bank especially in Al-Khalil, Nablus and the Jenin refugee camp where they broke into and ransacked dozens of houses and buildings at the pretext of looking for wanted Palestinians.

Palestinian local sources reported that a large number of the Israeli Golani and Shimshon brigades reinforced by a military chopper kidnapped a Palestinian ex-detainee called Omar Al-Aramin, 54, in the area of the Rashaida Arabs in Al-Khalil after chasing him for hours and took him to an unknown destination.

The IOF troops kidnapped Aramin many times and recently demolished his house. Two weeks ago, he went on hunger strike in protest at the continuing abduction of Palestinian women in Israeli jails.

IOF troops boarding dozens of military vehicles also stormed the Jenin refugee camp and the Laban village in the south of Nablus amid intensive gunfire and kidnapped an elderly citizen called Hussein Al-Haj, 60, from the camp and five young men from the village.

Eyewitnesses said that the IOF troops imposed a curfew on the Laban village and blocked its inhabitants from going to the mosques for prayer during which they ransacked dozens of houses.

In another context, the Nafha society for the defense of human and prisoners" rights reported that the IOA filed a fabricated indictment against prisoner Hamza Abu Khamis after he spent eight months in administrative detention without any trial.

Khamis was kidnapped in September 2007 and administratively detained in the Israeli Hasharon prison. His father also is in administrative detention in the Negev prison and one of his brothers was sentenced to 12 years in the jalbo prison.

The mother told the society that the IOA prevents her and the family from visiting her husband and two sons in Israeli jails without any reason.

She also appealed to human rights organizations to enable her along with the rest of the family to visit her husband and sons and to work on getting them released for the lack of evidence against them.

In a written press release received Monday by the PIC, prisoner Nasser Uwais, a prominent leader of the Aqsa Brigades the armed wing of Fatah, who is serving 14 life sentences in the Israeli Hadarim prison, said that the Fatah leadership do nothing for its prisoners and do not provide them with minimum care or follow-up.

Uwais affirmed that the only prisoners who do not receive financial allocations from their Movements are the prisoners of Fatah, adding that the Fatah prisoners want to know what the Fatah central committee do with the movement"s money.
