Days Of Palestine – West Bank
Israeli forces today detained 16 Palestinians, including an injured teen, during multiple overnight raids across the West Bank, said the Palestine Prisoners’ Society (PPS).
PPS confirmed that Israeli forces rounded up six Palestinians, including a former prisoner, after storming the houses of their families in the northern West Bank district of Jenin.
Five of the six detainees were identified as residents of Jenin city and the other as a resident of Jenin refugee camp.
Meanwhile, PPS said that six Palestinians were rounded up mostly in predawn raids across the Ramallah and al-Bireh district.
Israeli forces conducted a raid in Deir Abu Mashaal village, northwest of Ramallah city, resulting in the detention of two Palestinians.
This came as soldiers stationed at the entrance to the neighboring village of Deir Nitham opened fire towards two teens from the village, injuring one with a live round in the thigh.
Both teens were detained, and the injured was taken to the Israeli hospital of Tel Hashomer.
Soldiers also detained two other Palestinians in separate two raids in Kobar town and Umm Safa village, northwest of Ramallah.
Confrontations erupted as soldiers were withdrawing from Kobar. No injuries were reported though.
In the meantime, PPS confirmed an Israeli military raid in Tell town, southwest of Nablus, resulting in the detention of two Palestinians.
Israeli police detained two others from Jerusalem, including one after severely assaulting him.
