Israeli forces detain 19 Palestinians in the occupied territories

 

RAMALLAH, Tuesday, May 19, 2020 (WAFA) – Israeli forces detained this morning at least 19 Palestinians throughout the occupied territories, but mainly from East Jerusalem, according to the Palestinian Prisoner Society (PPS).

It said the forces detained 10 Palestinians in occupied East Jerusalem, most of them from its old city after raiding their homes during the night hours, while detaining this morning a guard of Al-Aqsa Mosque while on the job at the mosque compound.

The army continued its week-long campaign in the northern West Bank town of Yabad, where a soldier was killed last week, and detained two 17-year-old minors and another 23-year-old youth. The army has detained more than 30 people from the town so far.

In addition, soldiers detained two people from the village of Kobar, near Ramallah, where the army demolished a house last week, three from the southern West Bank city of Hebron, including a 17-year-old minor, and a man from the town of Obeidieh in an effort to get his son to turn himself over to the army.
