RAMALLAH, (PIC)-- IOF troops kidnapped ten Palestinian minors in a village west of Ramallah city at an early hour on Wednesday at the pretext they were throwing stones at Israeli settlers' vehicles.

In a similar campaign the IOF soldiers rounded up Palestinian children in a nearby village a few days ago.

In the Gaza Strip, witnesses said that a number of IOF tanks advanced into northern Gaza near the Beit Hanun city before retreating at noon leaving behind big destruction.

Witnesses said that the tanks destroyed animal corrals that killed a number of livestock.

Meanwhile, the IOF gunboats shelled positions of the newly formed PA marine police in Sudaniya northwest of Gaza city, but no casualties were reported.

In Balata refugee camp near Nablus city, IOF soldiers stormed the home of two Hamas prisoners and wreaked havoc in the building before detonating dynamite inside the third floor.

The recently built floor was completely destroyed and the powerful explosion cracked the entire building rendering it unfit for living.

Father of the two prisoners said that 17 persons, more than half of them are children, were thus homeless.
