RAMALLAH, Thursday, March 11, 2021 (WAFA) – Israeli forces Thursday overnight detained five Palestinians and injured three others across the West Bank, according to security sources.

They confirmed that Israeli forces rounded up a Palestinian after storming and wreaking havoc inside his family house in Dura city, southwest of Hebron, and another from Beit Ula town, west of the city.

Soldiers also barged their way into Sa‘ir town, northeast of the city, where they detained two brothers.

Meanwhile, a sizable Israeli military force raided Dheisha refugee camp, south of Bethlehem, sparking violent confrontations.

The soldiers opened fire toward local youngsters, injuring at least three with rounds in their feet. The casualties were rushed to a nearby hospital for treatment. Their condition was described as stable.

During the raid, the soldiers stormed several houses in the camp after detonating their front doors ransacked their contents, and eventually detained a resident.

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.
