Israeli occupation forces arrested at dawn Sunday four young Palestinians from occupied East Jerusalem, and one in Hebron, in the southern part of the occupied West Bank, after the army invaded many homes, and conducted violent searches, causing property damage.

The soldiers invaded many homes in occupied Jerusalem, and caused damage to furniture and property, in addition to terrifying families during the violent dawn raids, and abducted four young men.

Furthermore, dozens of soldiers invaded Beit Ummar town, north of the southern West Bank city of Hebron, before storming and ransacking homes in Safa area, north of the town, and abducted a former political prisoner.

Meanwhile, Israeli forces notified on Sunday to demolish 20 homes within a period of 60 days in the village of al-Aqaba, to the east of Tubas in the Jordan Valley region in the occupied West Bank, according to local sources.

Mayor of the village, Sami Sadeq told (WAFA) News Agency that Israeli army handed notices to local citizens informing them that the 20 homes, currently uninhabited, would be demolished in 60 days for lacking Israeli construction permits.

Nonetheless, Sadeq added, that 20 homes slated for demolition have valid construction permits issued by the Construction and Organization Committee of the village.

The village is located within Area C, the more than 60 percent of the occupied West Bank under full Israeli civilian and security control.

Palestinians in the area are not allowed to build on their own private lands without nearly impossible-to-obtain Israeli-issued building permits. (QNA)
