Palestinian village raided, curfew imposed

Israeli occupation forces have imposed a curfew on the village of Asirah near the West Bank city of Nablus.

    The occupation forces demolished houses

    The forces invaded the village at dawn on Thursday, raided and demolished a number of houses and damaged some cars while they were allegedly searching for wanted Palestinian fighters, witnesses told our correspondent.

     

    The forces also raided and captured a residential building in the Thannabat al-Matalah district. They arrested three fighters of Fatah's al-Aqsa Martyrs Brigades, the correspondent said.

     

    Official held captive

    Meanwhile, a Palestinian official from the Ministry of Prisoner Affairs was taken captive on Thursday by Israeli occupation troops in his office in the West Bank city of Ram Allah, a ministry source said.

      

    Muhammad al-Fuqayat heads a department of the ministry tasked with distributing financial aid to Palestinian prisoners freed by Israel.

      

    Israeli soldiers also searched the office of Qaddura Faris, a member of the mainstream al-Fatah movement in the Palestinian Authority cabinet whose headquarters is in the same building.
