SILWAN, The Israeli occupation forces (IOF) kidnapped at dawn Sunday five Palestinian boys in Silwan town, south of the Aqsa Mosque in occupied Jerusalem, on suspicion of their participation in recent events in the occupied holy city and took them to Maskubiya detention center.

Local sources said that dozens of Israeli troops stormed the town at an early hour today and raided homes mainly in the neighborhoods of Battn Al-Hawa, Al-Hara Al-Wusta and Al-Bustan.

They added that the troops dealt harshly with the Palestinians and deliberately terrorized women and children during their raids.

In another context, the Palestinian residents of Silwan complained about the cracks and cave-ins that happen in their homes as a result of the underground excavations carried out by the Israeli authority of antiquities especially in the winter.

They reported that new fissures and cave-ins started to appear inside their homes with the advent of winter and said that they filed official complaints in this regard with the Israeli occupation authority, but to no avail.

In a separate incident, Israeli policemen kidnapped Sunday morning two Palestinian young men from their homes in Umm Al-Fahm city inside the 1948 occupied lands.

The Israeli police claimed they participated in last Wednesday clashes which broke out after Jewish extremist settlers led by right-wing Knesset member Baruch Marzal staged a provocative protest against Sheikh Ra'ed Salah, the head of the Islamic Movement.

Local sources said that the two young men will stand trial in Khudayrah city, adding that nine other young men and children have been detained since the clashes for allegedly throwing stones at policemen.

Earlier on Saturday, the IOF troops kidnapped specialist in settlement activities Issa Amro during his presence in the southern side of Al-Khalil city.

Eyewitness said that the troops blindfolded Amro and tied his hands behind his back before taking him to the PA-Israeli coordination office in the city.

Amro was detained as he was documenting Israeli settler's violations and assaults on the Palestinian residents of the old city in Al-Khalil during the religious celebrations that were taking place inside the Ibrahimi Mosque.

In another incident, the IOF troops fired intensively rubber and live bullets, and tear gas grenades at the peaceful march held every Saturday in protest at the segregation wall and settlement activities in Beit Ummar town, north of Al-Khalil.

The troops prevented by armed force the marchers from reaching the Palestinian lands near Karmi Tsur settlement at the pretext that the area next to the settlement is a closed military zone.
