RAMALLAH, Tuesday, March 01, 2022 (WAFA) – Israeli forces Tuesday overnight detained seven Palestinians from various parts of the West Bank, according to security sources.
They said that Israeli troops re-arrested a former prisoner after storming and searching his house in Kafr Ni'ma town, west of Ramallah.
The heavily-armed troops re-arrested another after ransacking his family house in Ni'lin town, northwest of Ramallah.
While in the town, soldiers re-arrested five others, but released them following hours of interrogation.
In Nablus district, the sources confirmed a similar raid in Beit Furik town, southeast of the city, resulting in the detention of another.
In the northern West Bank, Israeli special forces driving vehicles with Palestinian registration plates sneaked their way into Jenin refugee camp and re-arrested a former prisoner.
Heavily-armed soldiers barged their way into Jalamah town, north of Jenin, where they re-arrested another and seized her mobile phones after forcibly entering and searching her family house.
In the southern West Bank, the military vehicles stormed Za'atara town, southeast of Bethlehem, where soldiers detained a Fatah activist.
In Hebron district, gun-toting soldiers carried out a raid in Hahul town, north of the southern West Bank city, where they rounded up another after shooting him in the leg.
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.
