150 Palestinian Women, Kids Arrested

More than 150 Palestinian women and children have been arrested by Israeli forces in a village near the northern West Bank city of Nablus, local officials say.

Hundreds of Israeli troops stormed the Awarta village after midnight and imposed a curfew after which they began rounding up the women, a Press TV correspondent reported from Ramallah.

The Palestinian Authority has condemned the abductions on Thursday morning, the correspondent added.

The Israeli army continued to conduct house-to-house searches through the night, he further explained.

Palestinian security sources confirmed the same information.

The Israeli army has been conducting frequent raids on the village for the past four weeks, arresting scores of villagers following last month’s murders of a family living in the nearby settlement of Itamar.

No one has been charged so far, with the military refusing to comment on the detentions.

Meanwhile, Israeli military bulldozers have also razed down at least two Palestinian houses in the village of al-Aqaba.
