Wanted Palestinian activist escapes Israeli raid near Jenin

Jenin - Ma'an - Israeli occupation forces surrounded a "wanted" man's house in the West Bank village of Dir Abu Da'if, east of Jenin, and also raided the nearby town of Qabatiya early on Saturday morning.

Palestinian security sources reported that Israeli forces besieged the house of Mohie Yaseen, an activist with the armed wing of Fatah, the Al-Aqsa Brigades.

Witnesses said that Israeli forces approached the house from several directions, shooting in the air and deploying sonic bombs. The Israeli troops, using a public address system, ordered the residents out of the house.

The soldiers then searched the house and withdrew from the area, witnesses added. No arrests were made. Mohie Yaseen was reported to be not at home.

In Qabatiya, Israeli forces entered the city from the south, and patrolled the streets, erecting barriers at the main entrances of the town, local residents said. The soldiers left two hours later without making arrests.
