Israeli troops abduct 12 Palestinians

Israeli forces have abducted 12 Palestinians, including two women, overnight during raids on six villages near the northern West Bank town of Jenin.

The Israeli army said in a statement on Tuesday that the detainees were senior Palestinian Islamic Jihad activists, Ma’an news agency reported.

The Israeli military has also ordered the closure of Palestinian charity Al Bara’a, claiming its operations harm Israelis, according to the statement. 

Palestinian security officials said Arraba, Kafr Ra’i, Jaba, Az-Zababida, Anin and Silat Al-Harithiya villages were raided.

Islamic Jihad said Israeli soldiers tried to detain the movement’s leader Khadir Adnan overnight, but he was not at home at the time of the attack.

Meanwhile, Palestinian security sources said soldiers ransacked the offices of the Palestinian People’s Party and offices of the Islamic Relief Society as well as several other offices in the Al Bureiki building in the center of Jenin.
