11 arrested in Israeli raids across West Bank

July 31, 2008 10:50 A.M. (Updated: July 31, 2008 10:50 A.M.)
Bethlehem - Ma'an - Israeli forces detained 11 Palestinians in raids across the West Bank early on Thursday morning.

Israeli sources said that eight "wanted fighters" have been arrested in and around Bethlehem, Hebron, Nablus, Jenin and Ramallah, confirming that detainees were transferred to interrogation centers for questioning.

Included in those arrested was Rami Ismael Dahoud, a 22 year-old from Jenin, after sources say Israeli forces broke into his house, throwing sound bombs and firing freely causing Dahoud's father to collapse and be rushed to hospital.

Also Thursday morning Israeli forces detained 14-year-old Khalil Mohamed Musleh 'Awad and his 20-year-old brother Mahmoud Mohamed Musleh 'Awad from Beit Ummar, after breaking into their home. The two are accused of resisting Israeli forces.

A large military force stormed the town and besieged the house of Mohammed Awad the head of a Youth Sports Club at Beit Ummar, detained his two sons and took them to an unknown location for questioning.

The older of the two boys, Mahmoud, a youth club football player, was shot in the right foot one week ago by Israeli forces. The injury needs constant medical attention, and his family is worried that it will not be treated while he is detained.

Mohammed 'Awad has a third 17 year-old son, who has been detained by Israeli forces for more than one year.
