RAMALLAH, Tuesday, November 9, 2021 (WAFA) – Israeli forces Tuesday overnight detained at least seven Palestinians, including a mother and her 14-year-old child, from various parts of the West Bank, according to local and security sources.
They said that Israeli forces rounded up a prisoner’s wife along with her 14-year-old boy after storming their house in the town of Silat al-Harithiya, northwest of Jenin.
The soldiers re-arrested the boy’s uncle, a former prisoner, from the same northern West Bank town.
Still in Jenin district, the soldiers barged their way into Ya’bad town, southwest of the city, and set up a roadblock close to a local school, before detaining a university student who was heading to Kadoorie Technical College in Tulkarm.
In the southern West Bank, the sources confirmed a raid in Husan town, west of Bethlehem, resulting in the detention of another.
Israeli military vehicles stormed Beit Awwa town, southwest of Hebron, where soldiers detained another and ransacked several houses.
Another was detained from his house in Hebron city.
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.
