(Update): Israeli Army Arrests Five Palestinians in West Bank

TULKARM, March 25, 2015 (WAFA) – An Israeli army unit Wednesday arrested four Palestinians in the West Bank districts of Jenin and Tulkarm, according to security sources.

Army forces broke into the city of Tulkarm, where they arrested Tareq Taneeb, 28, stormed the nearby town of Anabta, and arrested Anas Abu Asal, 25.

The Israeli soldiers also broke into the city of Jenin, where they arrested 18-year-old Anas al-Damaj, after raiding and searching his family home.

Meanwhile, an army force set a flying checkpoint at Jenin-Nablus highway, causing a traffic jam. The soldiers at the checkpoint arrested 20-year-old Alaa Zakarna, a resident of nearby Qabatia, and interrogated another one before he was allowed to go.

Earlier last night, the army stormed the Hebron district towns of Beit Ummar, Beit Awwa and Surif, where they searched a few homes. There were no reports of arrests.
