Israeli forces detain six Palestinians from West Bank

RAMALLAH, Wednesday, September 22, 2021 (WAFA) – Israeli forces Wednesday overnight detained at least six Palestinians from various parts of the West Bank, according to local and security sources.

They said that Israeli soldiers rounded up a Palestinian after ransacking his family house in Jalazone refugee camp, north of Ramallah city.

In East Jerusalem, dozens of Israeli soldiers hiding in a minibus stormed Shuafat refugee camp and snatched four others.

Meanwhile, the sources confirmed a similar raid in Jericho city, resulting in the detention of another.

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.
