Al Quds reported that Israel launched a massive campaign of arrests Monday morning in separate areas of Jerusalem and the West Bank. The Israeli forces stormed villages, camps, and towns in several separate areas, and raided dozens of homes, subjecting many residents to field investigations.
Al Quds editor, Suleiman Abu Ghosh, and an employee, Nour Ezzat, were arrested in the Qalandia refugee camp, north of Jerusalem. In Shechem, editor-in-chief Yassin Abu Lafah was also arrested.
Al Quds conceded that confrontations took place between angry youths and the soldiers during the arrests, while armed residents opened fire at the IDF forces.
