Bethlehem – Israeli forces invaded the West Bank city of Bethlehem and four surrounding villages on Thursday night and Friday morning, seizing two Palestinians, while a third was detained at a military checkpoint.
Israeli troops stormed the village of Tuqu, south of Bethlehem, before midnight and raided several houses, including those belonging to Khaled Khalil Sabah and Salem Abu Mefreh, the director of the Boy’s School in the village. The soldiers threatened to demolish the school if the students threw stones at Israeli soldiers. Israeli forces seized 18-year-old Umar Ismail Mahmoud Sabah.

In Beit Sahour, east of Bethlehem, Israeli troops seized 27-year-old Rami Mahmoud Hussein Shoaiba, witnesses said. His whereabouts is not known.

Separately, Palestinian security sources reported that Israeli troops arrested Idris Munther Moussa Sabah, a Bethlehem resident, while he was attempting to cross the “Container” checkpoint, which separates Bethlehem from the northern West Bank.

Israeli forces also stormed the villages of Husan and Nahalin, west of Bethlehem, raiding houses. No one was arrested in either village.
