Days of Palestine – Jenin
Israeli occupation forces last night, Thursday, detained seven Palestinians during military raids in the occupied West Bank provinces of Jenin and Hebron, according to local sources.
In Jenin, north of the occupied West Bank, Israeli occupation forces stormed the town of Qabatiya, where they detained five Palestinian young men after raiding and searching their homes. All of the detainees are in their twenties.
Clashes erupted between the attacking forces and angry local residents following the Israeli raid of the town.
Meantime, Israeli occupation forces stormed the Al-Rama neighborhood in the city of Hebron, south of the West Bank, and detained a local Palestinian resident after raiding and searching his home. Another Palestinian was also arrested during an Israeli raid of the nearby town of Deir Samet.
Almost on a daily basis, basis and typically at nighttime, Israeli occupation forces raid towns and villages in the occupied West Bank to carry out arrests or summon civilians for questioning. This has been part of daily life under the Israeli military regime for decades.
For long years, the Israeli military and security forces have been given the green light to use deadly force solely against the Palestinians who are accused or suspected of attacking or intending to attack Jewish settlers or soldiers, even when they do not pose an immediate threat or try to defend themselves.
