Occupied Palestine – Israeli occupation forces detained on Monday eight Palestinians throughout the occupied West Bank.
Local sources said Israeli forces detained a former prisoner after breaking into his house and searching it in Tammun town, south of Tubas.
In the southern West Bank, the force raided Abu Nujaym area, east of Bethlehem, and detained two Palestinians.
In Nablus, Israeli occupation forces in their vehicles stormed Qusra town and detained a father and his son. The forces also raided Kafr Qallil town and detained a Palestinian man.
The occupation forces also raided Aida refugee camp where they detained a Palrstinian and searched houses.
In Hebron, they also detained another Palestinian after raiding and searching his house in the neighborhood of Jabal al-Rahma.
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.
