RAMALLAH, Monday, August 9, 2021 (WAFA) – Israeli forces Monday overnight detained 11 Palestinians from various parts of the West Bank, according to local and security sources.

They said that Israeli forces rounded up two Palestinians after storming and searching their houses in al-Am‘ari refugee camp, south of al-Bireh city.

In Nablus district, Israeli soldiers in fall military gear barged their way into Beita town, which has become a scene of weekly protests rallies to protest Israeli settler-colonialism and pillage of Palestinian land, where they detained six residents after ransacking their houses.

In Jerusalem, Israeli police Sunday night brutally assaulted and arrested three young men from the plaza of Bab al-Amoud, also known as Damascus Gate.

Wadi Hilweh Information Center posted a video footage showing Palestinians trying to prevent police officers from beating the men violently.

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.
