DAYS OF PALESTINE – Occupied Lands Of 1948
The Israeli occupation forces launched a large-scale arrest campaign against dozens of Palestinians in the Neqab on Tuesday morning.
Asra Media Office affirmed that 41 Palestinians were rounded up during the campaign, including minors.
130 of the Neqab residents, including women and children, were detained during the events that took place in recent days in the Neqab desert.
On Sunday, Israeli occupation extended the arbitrary arrest of 50 detainees and released the rest into house arrest, while appeals filed by Israeli occupation police and lawyers representing the citizens are being studied by courts.
In recent days, hundreds of local Arabs in Neqab staged protests against the exposure of their lands to appropriation by the “Jewish National Fund,” an Israeli organization that collects money from Jews around the world to fund the appropriation of Palestinian property.
The protests were met with brutal force by the Israeli occupation police, causing several injuries, while many were arrested and jailed.
Last Thursday, in particular, hundreds of local Arabs in Neqab staged protests against their land confiscation by this Jewish National Fund.
However, Israeli occupation police, some disguised in Arab clothes, violently suppressed the protests, and arrested many demonstrators.
The Israeli occupation police also used stun grenades, rubber bullets and tear gas to disperse the protesters, injuring many local citizens.
