Israeli occupation forces storm several neighborhoods in the occupied West Bank, amid resistance from Palestinians.
Israeli occupation forces (IOF) stormed Wednesday the Al-Makhfia neighborhood in the western region of Nablus, amid resistance from Palestinians who confronted the occupying forces.
Local sources said IOF snipers were deployed on some buildings in the neighborhood, adding that the IOF arrested the elderly Mahmoud Odeh, the father of prisoner Mustafa Odeh, who was arrested a few days ago from the same neighborhood.
The sources said the IOF arrested young man Hussam Al-Masri after storming his house in Al-Makhfia neighborhood in Nablus before withdrawing from the scene.

Rallies roam Palestinian cities in support of Areen Al-Ousoud
On Tuesday, hundreds of Palestinians rallied in the center of the city of Nablus, which has witnessed an Israeli occupation siege following several shooting operations in the past couple of weeks.
Responding to the calls of Areen Al-Ousoud (Lions' Den) Resistance group, marches roamed the city's neighborhoods and suburbs.
The Palestinian Resistance group had called on the people of Nablus to mobilize and to be fully prepared to confront the Israeli occupation.
In the same context, rallies and marches roamed several areas in occupied Al-Quds and its suburbs, especially in Silwan, Shuafat refugee camp, and the neighboring town of Anata.
The Dheisheh refugee camp near the city of Beit Lahm witnessed a massive rally in response to the call of the Resistance group.
The areas of Tulkarm and Tubas and the towns and camps north of Al-Khalil also witnessed rallies in support of Areen Al-Ousoud.
Israeli media had talked about the possibility of a military operation in Nablus to end the presence of Areen Al-Ousoud, which had earlier called on the Palestinians to confront the Israeli settlers' marches in the West Bank and directly stand up against them.
It is noteworthy that Areen Al-Ousoud is a group that includes members of Al-Quds Brigades and Al-Aqsa Martyrs' Brigades in Nablus and Jenin in the northern West Bank.
Last week, the Israeli occupation forces imposed a siege on the city of Nablus following a shooting operation that led to the killing of an Israeli occupation soldier and the injury of two others at the Shuafat checkpoint.
