Israeli forces raid houses in Salfit

June 23, 2014 6:39 A.M. (Updated: June 24, 2014 3:41 A.M.)
SALFIT (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces entered the town of Qarawat in the central West Bank early Monday and searched several houses, locals told Ma'an.

Witnesses told Ma'an that Israeli forces raided the houses of Said Assi, Azzam Miri, Alaa Assi, Hajj Tawfiq, Muhib Miri, Abu al-Hareth Assi, Harb Rayan, Hajj Abd al-Aziz Assi, Azzam Miri, Abu Ayman Miri, and Abu Aziz Miri.

Soldiers damaged possessions and stole money in some of the houses, locals said.

The raids come amid an ongoing Israeli military campaign to find three missing Israeli teenagers.

Israeli forces have killed five Palestinians while conducting arrest operations, including two men shot dead on Sunday.

Israel accuses Hamas of kidnapping three Israeli teenagers from Gush Etzion settlement near Bethlehem, but the Islamist movement denies involvement.
