RAMALLAH, Thursday, August 05, 2021 (WAFA) – Israeli forces Thursday overnight detained at least 10 Palestinians and injured two others across the West Bank, according to local and security sources.
Israeli forces raided Wadi al-Far'a village, southwest of Tubas city, where they detonated the doors of several houses, went inside and ransacked their contents before rounding up a father and his two sons, as reported by Director of the Palestine Prisoner’s Society (PPS) Office, Kamal Bani-Odeh.
The soldiers forced their way into al-Far‘a refugee camp, triggering violent confrontations with local teens who protested the raid and injuring two by live ammunition.
In Jenin district, the sources confirmed a similar military raid in al-Yamun town, west of the city, where soldiers detained two others after ransacking the houses of their families.
In Ramallah district, Israeli soldiers conducted a raid in Deir Abu Mashaal village, northwest of the city, resulting in the detention of another.
In Jerusalem, Israeli police and intelligence officers rounded up two brothers from al-Bustan Street in Silwan neighborhood.
Meanwhile, Israeli troops barged their way into Beit Ummar town, north of Hebron city, where they thoroughly searched several houses and detained two teens, aged 16 and 17, as confirmed by local media activist, Mohammad Awad.
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.
