Israeli forces storm three towns in northern tip of West Bank

Aug. 17, 2008 3:29 P.M. (Updated: Aug. 17, 2008 3:29 P.M.)
Jenin - Ma'an - Israeli forces stormed the village of Silat Adh-Dhahr in south west Jenin on Sunday morning along with villages of Ti'nnik and Zububa north west of the city where the patrols searched agricultural lands.

The villages are clustered in the northern most point of the West Bank, near Israel's Salem military training compound. Last week several dunums of agricultural land and olive groves were destroyed to enlarge the area.

Palestinian sources say that Israeli forces stormed the village of Zububa at 2:30am Sunday morning and searched agricultural lands near the separation wall.

In Silat Adh-Dhahr and Ti'nnik, Israeli patrols marched the streets with no detentions reported.

Eyewitnesses in Ya'bad, a town south west of Jenin, said that Israeli forces patrolled As-Sahel road. The eyewitness heard shots fired and faint voices through loudspeakers.
