RAMALLAH —AlGhad— Israeli occupation troops, early Monday, raided numerous villages and cities across the West Bank, arresting 16 Palestinians, as extremists settlers and rabbis stormed into the Aqsa Mosque complex, Palestinian sources confirmed.

General Director of the Islamic Awqaf and Al-Aqsa Affairs, Sheikh Azzam Khatib, told Petra's reporter in Ramallah that Israeli settlers stormed the Mosque through the Bab Al-Magharbeh gate, under heavy Israeli police protection.

Meanwhile, the Palestinian Prisoner's Society said in a statement that Israeli soldiers stormed the cities of Hebron, Bethlehem, Jericho, Tulkarem, Ramallah and al Beira and arrested 16 citizens under the pretext they were wanted by Israeli authorities.

Khatib stressed that the settlers and rabbis provocatively toured the mosque's yards, where Muslim worshippers peacefully confronted the intruders chanting Allahu Akbar (God is great).

Nowadays, the Israeli army launches arrest campaigns on a daily basis against dozens of Palestinians in various cities and villages of the West Bank under various pretexts.
