The Israeli occupation forces (IOF) on Monday afternoon arrested two Palestinian youths at Annab checkpoint east of Tulkarem city.

Local sources told a news agency reporter that the IOF soldiers stopped a Palestinian vehicle at the checkpoint, searched it and arrested the two youths.

Hebrew media sources claimed that the IOF arrested a Palestinian after a knife was found in his possession at a military checkpoint near Tulkarem.

There are hundreds of Israeli checkpoints set up temporarily or permanently in the West Bank to isolate its provinces from each other and hinder the Palestinian citizens' movement. These checkpoints witness arbitrary arrest operations on a regular basis
