RAMALLAH, Friday, February 12, 2021 (WAFA) – Israeli forces Friday overnight detained two Palestinians from various parts of the West Bank, according to local sources.
Head of the Palestine Prisoner’s Society (PPS) Office in Jenin Muntaser Sammur said that Israeli forces rounded up a Palestinian after ransacking his house in Muthalath Ash-Shuhada village, south of Jenin city.
Meanwhile, Israeli police rounded up another from Salah El-Deen Street in East Jerusalem. The detainee was identified as a resident of al-Tur neighborhood.
In the Jordan Valley, soldiers detained a resident of Tubas district from the vicinity of the settler car-ramming attack against a group of hikers near Ein al-Beida village, east of Tubas city.
The attack, which was perpetrated this morning, resulted in the killing of a 52-year-old man from al-Bireh city and injuring two others.
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.
These raids, which take place also in areas under the full control of the Palestinian Authority, are conducted with no need for a search warrant, whenever and wherever the military chooses in keeping with its sweeping arbitrary powers.
Under Israeli military law army commanders have full executive, legislative and judicial authority over 3 million Palestinians living in the West Bank. Palestinians have no say in how this authority is exercised.
