Israelis kidnap 6 Palestinians in WB

Sun, 08 Feb 2009 09:48:29 GMT | PressTV

Israeli military forces have intensified their incursions into the West Bank after their unilateral cease-fire in the Gaza Strip.
Israeli troops have taken six Palestinian youth into custody after clashes erupted between the two sides in the Ras Al-Arud region.

Palestinian news agency, Maan, has reported that the Saturday arrests followed clashes in Ra's-ul-Orouz north of Al-Khalil on the west bank late Saturday.

A group of young Palestinian men hurled stones at Israeli forces after Israeli forces opened fire at them.

No injuries were reported.

The incident came a day after the Israeli troops arrested five other Palestinians during their assaults on various regions of the West Bank.

Israeli military forces stage attacks on the various areas of the West Bank almost on a daily basis under the excuse of arresting Palestinian fighters. They detain Palestinian people and take them to unknown locations.

Around 12,000 Palestinian detainees are currently being kept in the Israeli prisons.

The Israeli forces have intensified their assaults on the West Bank after declaring a unilateral cease-fire in the Gaza Strip.

Israel launched a 23-day offensive against the Gaza Strip claiming to counter Hamas rocket shells to its settlements. Around 1, 330 people including a large number of women and children were killed and 5, 450 others were injured during the slaughter.

In the wake of the strikes, the Israeli regime faced a widespread international condemnation and declared a unilateral cease-fire in the besieged region after failing to achieve its goals.

The war is considered the second major blow for the regime after its military failed to realize its goals in 33-day war on Lebanon in summer 2006.
