Israeli army raids West Bank village, holds residents for hours at a nearby camp


RAMALLAH, Thursday, August 01, 2019 (WAFA) – Israeli soldiers raided early this morning the Ramallah-area village of Deir Nitham, searched homes and held several residents for hours at a nearby army camp, reported witnesses.

They told WAFA that a large army force raided their village in the pre-dawn hours while residents were still asleep, broke into several homes and forced entire families to go out before taking 21 people to a nearby army camp where they were interrogated and held for several hours after which they were allowed to return to their homes.

No reason was given for the raid and detentions, but Deir Nitham has been a target of Israeli measures, including closure of its access roads, and raids for a while.
