Two minors among three detained from Jenin district


JENIN, Tuesday, April 14, 2020 (WAFA) – Israeli forces Tuesday evening detained three Palestinians, including two minors, from the northern West Bank district of Jenin, said local sources.

Israeli forces rounded up two Palestinian minors after storming the farmlands of Tora village, southwest of Jenin city, as confirmed by the minors’ parents.

Meanwhile, Israeli soldiers rounded up a Palestinian while tending his farmland in Faqu‘a village, east of Jenin.

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.

According to Palestinian figures, roughly 5,700 Palestinians -- including numerous women and children -- are currently languishing in Israeli detention facilities.
