JENIN (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces stormed the northern West Bank towns of al-Jalamah and Qabatia near Jenin on Sunday morning and ransacked several homes.

Palestinian security sources told Ma'an that Israeli forces in al-Jalamah stopped a teenage peddler named Muhammad Ibrahim Nuerat from Jenin while he was selling clothes at roadside stand near al-Jalamah checkpoint.

The sources added that ten Israeli military vehicles also stormed Qabatia and inspected several homes.

Local sources said that the soldiers inspected the homes of Khalil Salih Sabaanah, Ibrahim Said Sabaanah and Mustafa Shamma Sabaanah before they left the town.

An Israeli spokesman said that the raids in Qabatia were "routine security activity," but had no information on the raid in al-Jalamah.

The internationally recognized Palestinian territories of which the West Bank and East Jerusalem form a part have been occupied by the Israeli military since 1967.
