The army claimed that the 14 residents are ‘wanted’. Three were kidnapped in Qalqilia, three in Nablus, three in Bethlehem, three in Ramallah, and one in Hebron. They were all moved to interrogation centers.

The army violently broke into their homes and searched them.

In related news, Israeli soldiers attacked on Sunday evening a 15-year old Palestinian child from Izbit Al Tabeeb village, near the northern West Bank city of Qalqilia, and detained him for more than three hours.

Troops claimed that he hurled stones at them on the main Qalqilia road.

Dozens of Israeli soldiers were deployed around the village and near its entrances raising fear among the residents of a possible invasion.
