Salfit – Ma’an – Two 16-year-old boys were among four detained by Israeli troops overnight, while dozens of citizens reported harassment at the hands of the invading soldiers.

Bil'in residents reported the invasion of Israeli soldiers into the village at 2am Tuesday morning. A statement from the local Popular Committee said approximately 50 soldiers entered the area on food accompanied by a dozen military vehicles.

A statement from the committee said solders "abducted Hamouda Imad Yassin (16) and Ibrahim Khalil Yassin (16) after searching their homes."

The two had just been released from Israeli prison, where they spent five months. "This is the latest in a series of raids and arrests that have continued in Bil'in [during] the last six months," the statement said.

Palestinian police confirmed the raid and detentions, noting several homes were invaded. The police statement quoted Popular Committee member Muhammad Al-Khatib as saying the "detention of locals and overrunning the village will not influence over people’s steadfastness to oppose the wall."

In Burka village near Nablus, Israeli forces detained Muhammad Abdel Raouf ,15, and Ahmad Jihad Salah, 19.

During the raid, a police statement said, troops harassed Abdullah Shuqer, 22, from Az-Zawyeh village. The man was assaulted when he passed through an Israeli military checkpoint in the north of the West Bank. A second assault was reported by Mustapha Daraghmeh from Tubas, who said he was harassed while passing the Hebron checkpoint.

Both men were taken to hospital for treatment of their injuries.
