In the southern West Bank, Israeli soldiers re-arrested a former prisoner in a raid in Bethlehem.

The military vehicles stormed Beit Ummar town, north of the southern West Bank city of Hebron, where soldiers re-arrested a former prisoner.

In the northern West Bank, the sources confirmed a raid in Kafr Qallil village, south of Nablus, resulting in the detention of another.

Israeli troops also barged their way into al-Yamun town, west of Jenin, where they detained two others after ransacking the houses of their families.

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.
