Israeli forces detain 11 Palestinians from West Bank

RAMALLAH, Wednesday, July 28, 2021 (WAFA) – Israeli forces Wednesday overnight detained at least 11 Palestinians from various parts of the West Bank, according to local sources.

They said that Israeli forces rounded up two brothers after breaking into their houses in  Ta'amreh area, east of Bethlehem.

They also detained a father along with his teenage son from As-Saff neighborhood in the city in addition to two others from Aida refugee camp, north of the city.

Elsewhere in the southern West Bank, the military vehicles stormed Jaber neighborhood in the cold city of Hebron, where the soldiers detained two brothers.

In the northern West Bank, Israeli troops barged their way to Jenin refugee camp, where they detained three others, a former prisoner in addition to a father and his son, and ransacked their houses, turning them upside down.

In the confrontations that unfolded, the soldiers opened fire towards local youngsters who protested the raid. No injuries were reported though.

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.
