International Middle East Media Center: Israel forces raided several towns in the Jenin district, on Saturday, provoking clashes with residents, according to security sources.



Confrontations erupted between Palestinians and Israeli forces following an army raid on Silat al-Harithiya, a village located to the west of Jenin.
Soldiers fired stun grenades, tear gas canisters and rubber-coated metal bullets at the stone-throwing Palestinians, causing many suffocation cases, WAFA Palestinian News & Info Agency has reported.
Israeli forces had also raided Yabad, a town located to the southwest of Jenin, for the second day in a row, declaring the town a closed military zone.
They set up random checkpoints, launched a large-scale search campaign in the town and broke into Yabad Boys School and stationed themselves, there.
Elsewhere in the West Bank, Israeli forces broke into and set up military checkpoints in some residential neighborhoods in the southern city of Hebron, said security sources and witnesses.
Soldiers also raided the towns of Samou and Idna, in the Hebron area, setting up military checkpoints at the entrances of Dhahriya, Dura and Fawar refugee camp, located to the south of Hebron, as well as Sair, a town located to the northeast of Hebron.
They stopped vehicles travelling on the roads and inspected passengers’ ID cards.
