Days Of Palestine – West Bank

Israeli occupation forces overnight detained 18 Palestinians, including a minor and three siblings, and ransacked houses across the occupied West Bank, according to the Palestinian Prisoner’s Society (PPS).

PPS confirmed that Israeli forces detained four Palestinians from Beit Duqqu village, northwest of Jerusalem.

It added that two other Palestinians, including a 14-year-old minor, were rounded up from the East Jerusalem neighborhood of Silwan.

Meanwhile, PPS said that Israeli forces detained five people, including three siblings, from the southern West Bank district of Hebron.

One of the five detainees was identified as a 16-year-old teen from Beit Ummar town, north of Hebron, and the siblings as residents of Dura town, south of Hebron.

In Bethlehem district, Israeli military vehicles raided Marah Rabah village, south of Bethlehem city, where soldiers rounded up two Palestinians.

Soldiers also conducted a raid in al-Azzeh refugee camp, north of Bethlehem, resulting in the detention of two Palestinians.

In Ramallah district, PPS confirmed a military raid in Sinjil town, north of Ramallah, resulting in the detention of a Palestinian.

Two others were rounded up in separate two raids in Deir Abu Mashaal and al-Mazraa al-Gharbiyya villages, located to the northwest and north of Ramallah city respectively.

Israeli forces frequently raid Palestinian houses almost on a daily basis across the West Bank on the pretext of searching for “wanted” Palestinians, triggering clashes with residents.
