Ten Palestinians detained from West Bank

 

RAMALLAH, Monday, March 25, 2019 (WAFA) – Israeli forces Monday overnight detained at least ten Palestinians from various parts of the West Bank, said the Palestine Prisoner’s Society (PPS).

PPS confirmed in a press release that Israeli forces rounded up six Palestinians during multiple overnight raids from the central West Bank district of Ramallah and al-Bireh.

One of the raids was conducted in al-Jalazoun refugee camp, where soldiers detained two Palestinians, assaulted and injured their father after ransacking their family’s house.

In Bethlehem district, PPS confirmed three Palestinians were detained from the southern West Bank district.

Security sources told WAFA that two of the three detainees were rounded up from al-Khader and Beit Fajjar towns, south of Bethlehem.

PPS also said that Israeli military vehicles raided Biddu town, northwest of Jerusalem, where soldiers detained a Palestinian.

In the northern West Bank, soldiers ransacked the house of a Palestinian prisoner in Qalqilia city. During the raid, soldiers the prisoner’s vehicle in addition to the sum of 2,000 shekels in cash.

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.
