Israeli occupation forces detain 11 Palestinians from the occupied West Bank

RAMALLAH, Thursday, October 07, 2021 (WAFA) – Israeli occupation forces today detained at least 11 Palestinians from various parts of the West Bank, according to local and security sources.

They said that Israeli forces rounded up a Palestinian after storming his house in Tell town, southwest of Nablus city.

In Jenin district, Israeli forces re-arrested a former prisoner, who works as a teacher, after breaking into and searching his house in Zububa village, northwest of the city.

Still in Jenin district, soldiers raided the family house of Ayham Kamamji in Kufr Dan village, west of the city, interrogated and threatened to re-arrest his formerly detained brothers, and ransacked the house, turning it topsy-turvy.

Kamamji is one of the six Palestinians who managed to escape from the highly fortified Gilboa Prison in early September through a tunnel in what was described as the most dramatic and unprecedented prison break and were recaptured by the Israeli military later on.

In Tubas district, Israeli military vehicles stormed al-Fara refugee camp, south of the city, where soldiers detained three others, including a Fatah activist and his son.

During ensuing confrontations, the soldiers opened fire towards local teens who attempted to block their passage. No injuries were reported though.

In Jerusalem, a sizable Israeli police force stormed Isawiyyeh neighborhood and detained two others.

Police also detained prominent activist and community leader Mohammad Abu Hummus from the courtyards of Al-Aqsa Mosque.

In Bethlehem district, Israeli soldiers barged their way into al-Azzeh and Aida refugee camps, north of the city, where they rounded up three others, including a father and his son.
