Gaza, ALRAY - Israeli troops Tuesday overnight stormed a number of Palestinian homes across Jenin city, including of ex-prisoners affiliated with Islamic Jihad.
Ex-prisoner Ja’far Izziddin told local media that “An Israeli military force broke into his home in a barbaric manner,”
He said that “apparently a newly-appointed Israeli intelligence officer wanted to converse with me,”
“The officer threatened me with arrest once I am held for ‘abusive acts’, noting that the break-in period lasted for quarter an hour,” he said.
In a related vein, Safa Press reporter said Israeli forces raided the home of Islamic Jihad leader and former hunger-striking detainee Khader Adnan in Jenin’s Araba refugee camp.
Adnan refused to talk or shake hands with the military occupation officer, the reporter added. The force left after six minutes.
The officer also stormed the home of Tariq Qa’dan and asked him some questions. Their visit is reportedly just for ‘talking’.
According to Palestinian Center for Human Rights's weekly report (December 26, 2013 to January 1, 2014), Israeli forces conducted 53 incursions into Palestinian communities in the West Bank.
At least 40 Palestinians, including 18 children, were arrested during that period.
