RAMALLAH, Thursday, May 20, 2021 (WAFA) – The Israeli occupation army carried out a large-scale detention campaign across the occupied West Bank today and last night, during which dozens of Palestinian civilians were arrested and taken into Israeli custody, according to Palestinian security and local sources.
In the southern West Bank province of Hebron, the occupation forces raided several towns and villages in the district, and at least seven arrests were reported.
In Nablus district, north of the West Bank, at least four arrests by the Israeli occupation army were reported. Several arrests were also reported in the provinces of Jericho and Jenin.
In some of the raids, clashes erupted with local Palestinian citizens and several injuries among civilians were reported.
