Israeli forces detain three Palestinians from West Bank

RAMALLAH, Wednesday, March 31, 2021 (WAFA) – Israeli forces today detained three Palestinians from the West Bank districts of Ramallah and Tubas, according to security sources.

They confirmed that Israeli forces rounded up two a Palestinian after ransacking his family house in Deir Jarir town, northeast of Ramallah city.

They also rounded up another from Jalazone refugee camp, north of the city.

On Tuesday evening, undercover Israeli forces, known as Mista'arvim, sneaked their way into the Ramallah city neighborhood of al-Masyoon, where they kidnapped a Palestinian from his vehicle. The detainee was identified as a resident of Dir Nabala town, northwest of Jerusalem.

Meanwhile, Director of the Palestine Prisoner’s Society (PPS) Office, Kamal Bani-Odeh, confirmed an Israeli military raid in Tubas city, resulting in the detention of another.

In Jerusalem city, Israeli police re-arrested Majd Barbar just one day after releasing him from custody.

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.
