RAMALLAH, Friday, June 4, 2021 (WAFA) – Israeli forces Friday overnight detained at least two Palestinians from the West Bank, according to security sources.
They confirmed that Israeli forces rounded up a Palestinian after summoning him for interrogation at the notorious detention facility of Ofer, west of Ramallah city.
The detainee was identified as a resident of Beit Rima town, northwest of the city.
The soldiers rounded up another Palestinian after breaking into and ransacking his house in Yatta town, south of the southern West Bank city of Hebron.
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.
