Palestinians arrested in Israeli raid

Israeli occupation forces have raided the Palestinian city of Yamoun, west of Jenin and detained several people.

    The search operation was accompanied by gunfire

    According to Aljazeera’s correspondent in Jenin, the forces also imposed a curfew on the city on Tuesday.

    Residents said more than 20 military vehicles invaded the area, with troops carrying out large-scale house to house searches.

    The search operation was accompanied by shots being fired inside the homes.

    Israeli troops said they were searching for “wanted” Palestinians, the correspondent added.

    Israel routinely carries out such operations across Palestinian territories.
