International Middle East Media Center: Occupation forces, on Sunday, kidnapped six people in Qalqilya and an elderly in the Jerusalem area, as well as summoning another from Bethlehem for interrogation, according to reports by local and security sources.

Israeli soldiers stormed the village of Hejji, in Qalqilya, raiding houses and conducting a search campaign in the village, said the Prisoners’ Club.

Six people were taken, including two released prisoners.

Meanwhile, in Jerusalem, police abducted an elderly woman named Aida Sedawi, in Jerusalem’s old city, where they attacked a man, injuring him in his head when special police units clamped down on worshipers in the yards of Al-Aqsa Mosque.

Media sources told WAFA that police forces surrounded a number of youth in the southern part of the mosque, prevented Palestinians from entering the yards, while conducting an evacuation of worshipers who were already inside the mosque yards.

In Bethlehem, the Israeli army invaded the village of Beit Sahour, to the east, serving one Palestinian, age 30, with a summons to appear before Israeli intelligence in Gush Etzion, a settlement located to the south of Bethlehem.

Forces also stormed the nearby village of Beit Ta’mar and raided a house; no arrests were reported.

Meanwhile, in Hebron, forces set a military checkpoint at the entrance to Fawwar refugee camp, to the south of Hebron, searching vehicles and checking identity cards.
