Al-Issawiya is almost daily exposed to the incursions of the Israeli occupation forces, which deliberately arrest the town’s young men and women, break into homes, and search them in an attempt to terrorize the citizens and dissuade them from confronting their incursions and practices.

Issawiya has suffered for a long time from a campaign of collective punishment practiced by the occupation authorities against its residents, using all means of abuse and suppression against them, including imposing taxes and issuing violations.

In a related context, the Jerusalemite occupation forces arrested Ibrahim Al-Hneiti, after they raided and searched his home in Al-Tur town in Jerusalem.
