According to Aida residents, Israeli soldiers stormed the camp amidst heavy shooting and firing of teargas and sound bombs, the Alternative Info Center (AIC) has reported.

The indiscriminate shooting started a fire in one camp residence. Later, the soldiers arrested five men after searching their homes and forcing all residents out into the cold.

In Jenin, Israeli soldiers arrested two brothers in the village of Teyba, adjacent to the Separation Wall, after searching their homes as family members, including women and children, were forced to remain outside in the cold weather.

Three Palestinians were also arrested in Hebron.

The detainees were transferred to interrogation centers, under the pretext that they are wanted by the Israeli intelligence service.
