RAMALLAH, Friday, February 04, 2022 (WAFA) – Israeli forces Friday overnight detained five Palestinians from the northern West Bank, according to local and security sources.

They said that Israeli police rounded up a resident of Zububa village, northwest of Jenin, while he was in Israel.

Israeli forces also detained three others after breaking into and searching their houses in Jenin and Qalqiliya cities.

The soldiers conducted a similar raid in Kafr Qaddum town, east of Qalqiliya, 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.
