NABLUS, Sunday, July 19, 2020 (WAFA) – At least five Palestinians were detained and two others injured by Israeli occupation forces during raids last night and today across the occupied West Bank, according to the Palestinian Prisoner's Society (PPS).

Clashes erupted today after the occupation forces raided Balata refugee camp, near Nablus city, during which the latter fired live bullets at the protesters to disperse them, injuring two in the pelvis and knee respectively.

At least one Palestinian, 22 years old, was detained by the forces during the raid.

Earlier, the occupation forces detained two Palestinians in Tulkarm governorate, north of the West Bank, and two others in Hebron governorate, south of the territory.

Almost on a daily basis and typically at nighttime, Israeli occupation forces raid towns and villages in the occupied West Bank to carry out arrests or summon civilians for questioning. This has been part of the daily life under Israeli military regime for decades.
