The Israeli occupation forces (IOF) on Tuesday kidnapped a Palestinian elderly man from his home in al-Khalil city.
According to local sources, a large number of IOF troops stormed Farsh al-Hawa neighborhood of the city and kidnapped 72-year-old Badran Jaber after ransacking his home.
Israeli soldiers reportedly assaulted one of Jaber’s sons as they were searching the house.
Jaber, a senior official of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine, had already spent over 10 years in Israeli jails.
Meanwhile, the IOF intensified its arbitrary measure in the vicinity of the Ibrahimi Mosque in the Old City of al-Khali and on the roads near the illegal settlement of Kiryat Arba.
The IOF also closed the Ibrahimi Mosque and expelled all Awqaf employees and Muslim worshipers from inside it in order to allow Jewish settlers to hold religious celebrations.
