Occupied West Bank (The Inside Palestine) – The Israeli occupation forces (IOF) on Wednesday conducted a wide scale campaign of raids and detentions against the Palestinian people in the occupied West Bank towns and cities.
Local sources reported that the Israeli forces raided al-Arroub refugee camp in Hebron and detained Hamza Bassam Jawabreh, Maher al-Rai, Yusuf al-Rai, Hamza Mohammed Jawabreh, Ammar Jawabreh, Ihsan Banat and his son Adam, Mohammed Tafesh and his son Husam, and Kamel Abu Hashhash.
The sources added that the Israeli forces broke into the town of Halhul and detained Mohammed Za’amreh and his two sons Bader and Izz.
In the same context, the occupation forces set up several flying military checkpoints at the northern entrances into the city of Hebron and at the entrances into the towns of Sai’r, Yatta, and Halul, stopped Palestinian vehicles and checked the IDs of the occupants, hindering their movement.
In addition, the Israeli forces broke into the town of Jaba’ to the south of Jenin and detained ex-detainee Islam Abu Oun, after raiding on his house.
Moreover, the occupation forces detained ex-detainee and university student Yahya Alwi, after raiding on the house of his family and ransacking it in the town of Deir Jarir, east of Ramallah.
Also, the IOF forces broke into Nablus, ransacked a number of houses and detained three citizens named as Khaled Hamayel, Abdul Ghani Dwaikat, and Ali Lulah.
Israeli occupation forces routinely carry out arrest raids in the West Bank. Around 40 percent of Palestinian men living in the occupied territories have been detained by Israel at some point in their lives.
According to Palestinian figures, about 4,850 Palestinians, including 34 women and 160 children, are currently languishing in Israeli detention jails.
