Israel arrests 21 Palestinians in West Bank raids

Days of Palestine -

Days Of Palestine [the Occupied West Bank] – the Israeli occupation forces (IOF) arrested 21 Palestinians during overnight raids carried out across the occupied West Bank, on Monday. 

In a statement, the IOF claimed that the individuals had been detained for “suspected involvement in popular hostile activities”.

It, however, did not elaborate on the nature of these alleged "activities". 

The Israeli army carries out frequent arrest campaigns across the West Bank — including occupied East Jerusalem — on the pretext of searching for “wanted” Palestinians. 

According to Palestinian figures, roughly 5,700 Palestinians — including a number of women and children — are currently languishing in Israeli detention facilities.
