RAMALLAH, Monday, February 14, 2022 (WAFA) – Israeli forces Monday overnight detained ten Palestinians from various parts of the West Bank, according to local and security sources.
They said that Israeli forces rounded up a Palestinian from Khirbet Makhul, east of Toubas city, in the northern Jordan Valley.
In Salfit district, Israeli forces barged their way into Qarawat Bani Hassan town, west of the city, and detained another after ransacking his house.
They also detained another in a raid in Kafr ad-Dik town, west of Salfit.
In Nablus district, the military vehicles stormed Balata refugee camp, east of the city, where the soldiers detained another.
In Jerusalem district, the sources confirmed a similar raid in Anata town, northwest of the city, resulting in the detention of another.
Gun-toting soldiers conducted a raid in Abu Dis town, southeast of the city, resulting in the detention of another.
During ensuing confrontations, the soldiers opened fire towards local youths protesting the raid, wounding a youth by a live bullet in the shoulder.
In Hebron district, several military jeeps invaded the city neighborhoods, before the soldiers stormed and ransacked several homes and detained another.
The soldiers forced their way into Taffouh town, north of Hebron, and detained another.
They also rounded up two others; a 17-year-old teen from Halhoul town, north of the city, and a former prisoner from Dura town, southwest of Hebron.
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.
